Dolph Lundgren Will Star in a Lifeguard TV Show

Actor Dolph Lundgren arrives at Lionsgate Films' 'The Expendables 2' premiere on August 15, 2012 in Hollywood, California.

The Dolph Lundgren TV show the nineties neglected to deliver is (finally?) coming into existence. Lundgren is set to star in Rescue 3, an hour-long drama set in southern California about lifeguards, firefighters, and members of the Coast Guard; he'll play the "reluctant hero," according to THR. The show will air on Tribune stations, so that image you have in your head of a Baywatch-esque series with Xena-like distribution is probably accurate. Accurate and delightful.
