It is being reported that The Expendables is heading to FOX television as “an event series based on the movies, with the franchise’s writer and star Stallone executive producing alongside the films’ producer Avi Lerner and NCIS veteran Shane Brennan… as showrunner.”

Awesome news for Stallone and Expendables fans.

5 Other Stallone Characters That Need a TV Show

On August 22, 2013, Television Without Pity posted 5 Other Sylvester Stallone Characters That Need a TV Show.
When I clicked over to the article I thought I’d see Cobra, Demolition Man, and other of Sly’s action characters.  Boy, was I wrong.  Ethan Alter instead went with…
  1. Robert Hatch from Victory
  2. Nick Martinelli from Rhinestone
  3. Lincoln Hawk from Over the Top
  4. Sylvester Stallone from Burn, Hollywood, Burn
  5. Joe the Lion from Zookeeper
Props to Alter for thinking out of the box.

The Expendables as a TV Series?

News came out this week that there’s a rumor that a potential Expendables tv series could be in the works.  Now THAT would be cool if done correctly.  There’s the potential for story arcs a la the old Wise Guy series or the current Justified series.  Also an Expendables tv series could spotlight a regular team with guest stars for the Expendables movies.  I’d also suggest that the tv cast go into the series knowing that it’s called Expendables and that some of them could be.

Of course this is all speculation at this point.

The Contender One of the Best Ever

The Bleacher Report posted their choices for the The Best 50 Sports Shows of All TimeThe Contender came in at # 44 and here’s why…

  • The Contender was the brainchild of Mark Burnett of Survivor fame, and was originally hosted by Sugar Ray Leonard and Sylvester Stallone The show featured a bunch of amateur boxers trying to make it big. It was just a fun watch to see what it takes to make someone into a professional boxer.  The desperation some of these guys had was palpable, and it made it that much more entertaining to watch.  It eventually fizzled out, but I enjoyed the first season.
