[20.01 - French Time]'s Nellie Andreeva reports exclusively that James Cameron’s Lightstorm Entertainment and 20th Century Fox TV are developing a television series adapted from Cameron's 1994 action-comedy blockbuster True Lies.

True Lies starred Arnold Schwarzenegger and Jamie Lee Curtis, and was based on the 1991 French comedy film La Totale! directed by Claude Zidi. The 1994 movie centered on Harry Tasker (Schwarzenegger), a government spy whose wife (Curtis) believes he's a boring computer salesman and embarks on an affair with a car salesman who pretends to be a spy.

We'll see how much the reception of Nikita, which premiered last week on the CW, or of the upcoming J.J. Abrams new NBC series Undercovers (September 22) will affect the enthusiasm of the US networks for the spy-fi/comedy genre or for spy-fi in general.

Hugh... as much as I liked the French version (La Totale) I could not stand the US one... I am not sure I will be able to watch that.
