'The A-Team' Heads Back Into Action on TV

"Fast & Furious" writer Chris Morgan is set to produce a television revival of the 1980s action series "The A-Team."

According to Deadline, he's teamed with Tawnia McKiernan, the daughter of series co-creator Stephen J. Cannell, and "Sleepy Hollow" executive producer Albert Kim, who'll write the pilot.

As with the original NBC series, the contemporary take will center on Special Forces operatives who have been framed for a crime they didn't commit and set out to clear their names while using their skills to help those in need. However, unlike the '80s show, which featured an all-male team for most of its run, this one will include female members.

Created by the prolific team of Cannell and Frank Lupo, "The A-Team" aired for five seasons on NBC, from 1983 to 1987, and starred George Peppard, Dirk Benedict, Dwight Schultz and Mr. T.
