The small screen is about to get a big shot of adrenaline.

Fox is developing an event series based on The Expendables films, Deadline reports.

Fox has ordered a script for the project, which is described as a fun action drama that unites iconic TV action stars as a team of skilled heroes determined to stop a terrorist, much like the three films that united former action stars like Sylvester Stallone, Harrison Ford and Arnold Schwarzenegger, just to name a few.

The best and worst TV shows based on movies

Franchise writer and star Stallone is on board as an executive producer but no roles have been cast. Ride Along scribe Greg Coolidge and Kirk Ward are set to adapt the Expendables for TV, along with NCIS: LA showrunner Shane Brennan. All three will also serve as executive producers with Avi Lerner, Kevin King, Grant Anderson and Stallone.

The Expendables franchise, which spans three films dating back to 2010, has grossed nearly $800 million worldwide. Two more potential Expendables sequels, as well as a female-centered installment, are in various stages of development as well.

So which TV action stars of yesteryear should join The Expendables? Mr. T? Chuck Norris? Leave your suggestions below!
