SWAT is coming to the small screen. Deadline reports CBS has ordered a new TV series pilot based on the 2003 film.
Originally based on the 1975 series from Aaron Spelling, the action drama will follow “a locally born and bred S.W.A.T. lieutenant torn between loyalty to the streets and duty to his fellow officers when he’s tasked to run a highly-trained unit that is the last stop for solving crimes in Los Angeles.” The movie adaptation starred Samuel L. Jackson. Colin Farrell, Michelle Rodriguez, and LL Cool J.
The CBS pilot comes from The Shield‘s Shawn Ryan, Neal H. Moritz, Justin Lin, and Aaron Rahsaan Thomas. Sony Pictures TV and CBS TV Studios are producing.
