The Equalizer Reboot In Development At CBS

CBS is developing an Equalizer reboot.

The planned TV show is a reimagining of the classic series, which survived four seasons on CBS from 1985-1989, with Queen Latifah set to star and executive produce, Deadline notes:

The project hails from Take Two creators Andrew Marlowe & Terri Miller, Davis Entertainment, Flavor Unit, Martin Chase Productions, Universal Television and CBS TV Studios.

Written by Marlowe and Miller, who will serve as showrunners, The Equalizer stars Queen Latifah as an enigmatic figure who uses her extensive skills to help those with nowhere else to turn. This is a new take on the character played by Edward Woodward on the original series and by Denzel Washington in the movie franchise.
