It is reported that Irish actor Pierce Brosnan is planning to return to TV screens in a new thriller series.

The Hollywood Reporter says that Brosnan would produce and appear in the new show, which would follow the work of a fixer who deals with kidnappings and industrial espionage.

The 57-year-old would not, however, play the lead role.

Apart from a cameo in the pilot episode of 'Running Wilde' in 1992, Brosnan has not starred in a full TV series since 'Remington Steele', which ran from 1982 to 1987.
