ITV 2 is pressing ahead with a new spoof comedy series, that on the surface seems to hark back to the likes of Police Squad! It’s called Action Team, and it stars Tom Davis, Jim Howick, Kayode Ewumi and Laura Checkley, as the spy team who have to save the world.
And now they’ve recruited Vicky McClure to head things up. McClure will take on the role of Ruth Brooks, the head of the team of agents, who work for the British government.
The show has been written by Tom Davis and James DeFrond, and filming is underway now. Action Team will debut on ITV 2 next spring.
