Lionsgate Considering an Expendables TV Show

Lionsgate is apparently considering an Expendables TV show, Deadline reports, and if you listen closely, you can hear the History Channel saying, "Us! Us! Pick us! We love old-man stuff!" It's just one among several Lionsgate titles the company is considering adapting for television, though it seems particularly ill-suited to make the leap. We can easily imagine a Step Up series (on the CW or MTV maybe?) starring a fresh crop of young dancers, but the entire point of The Expendables is its famous cast — and Sylvester Stallone and Bruce Willis seem like unlikely candidates for television at this point in their careers.
