Just the other day I was thinking what TV is really missing is a new version of 'Zorro.' While that statement is not even a little bit true, somebody at the USA Network apparently did have a thought like that, as the network is going to bring a modern-day version of the swashbuckler into your homes.
'Z,' as the new series is called, is being developed at the network from executive producers Naren Shankar and Louis Leterrier, as well as writers Whit Brayton and Zack Rice.
Shankar, who has experience working on 'CSI' and 'Grimm,' will serve as the showrunner (provided it goes ahead as planned), with Leterrier (who has directed "The Incredible Hulk" and "Clash of the Titans") would also direct some episodes. The show would be a script-to-series order and a decision is expected in early 2013 if USA wants to go ahead with this or not. If USA goes ahead, it will go right to series without a pilot.
The series would be set in modern-day Los Angeles and deal with Diego Moreno's rise from being an orphaned teen to the hero fighting against injustice to save innocents.
What do you think about this? If you ran USA, would you consider the concept to be worth a shot?
