It’s been 23 years since Arnold Schwarzenegger and Jamie Lee Curtis starred in James Cameron’s 1994 action-comedy True Lies, but Fox is betting the premise will still make you stand up and beg for buttermilk. According to Deadline, the network has made a put-pilot commitment for an hour-long TV version, to be directed by McG, who also directed the pilot for Fox’s Lethal Weapon adaptation. The idea of a True Lies TV series has been kicking around for quite a while, at one point landing at ABC with a Cameron-penned pilot. Hey, if Jamie Lee Curtis is going to be reprising her most famous roles, returning as Helen Tasker seems like a move an entire generation of adolescent action fans could immediately get behind.
