The New Professionals
The Professionals return in this dynamic series starring Edward Woodward as CI5 boss Harry Malone, Colin Wells (Curtis), Kal Weber (Keel) and Lexa Doig (Tina Backus). With a respectful nod to Cowley, Bodie and Doyle of the series’ previous incarnation, this updated team of fearless and resourceful CI5 agents take on international criminals in this slick new series.
Shot on location in the UK, the US and South Africa, CI5 – The New Professionals has a confident, exotic look – maybe a slight swagger. With tightly written storylines and punchy direction each new episode is a mini-movie: action-packed, atmospheric and humorous. It’s James Bond for television.
David Wickes Television produced 13 x 1 hour episodes and the series was sold to over 40 countries worldwide including Sky One in the UK, TF1 in France and ARD in Germany.
“If you didn’t hear about it on the morning news, CI5 dealt with it last night.”
