ABC nabs 'True Lies' television adaptation

Yargh! What’s that? You think I’m angry? No, silly, that was just an Arnold-esque expression of joy! (Or, at least Conan O’Brien’s Arnold-esque expression of joy.) For how could I not be pumped that the TV adaptation of True Lies – executive produced by none other than James Cameron – is headed to ABC? (The network confirmed the news – first reported by Deadline – with EW.)

This can only mean one thing: With Cameron at the wheel, we need to start picking up some 3-D televisions. Or not – if the TV series finds someone as in shape as 1994 Arnold Schwarzenegger for the plum role of spy/dad Harry Tasker, his veins will pretty much pop off the screen without the help of technology, right?

Either way, may we make a plea once again that Cameron, and ABC, bring back True Lies alum Eliza Dushku for the adaptation? Come on, we have Faith (heh) she’ll be perfect!

Who else is excited to see that this is actually happening?
