Not sure what to think about this one.

It's created by Philippe Martinez, who directed a pretty good Van Damme movie ("Wake of Death").
On the other side, Seagals first Series "True Justice" was pretty disappointing, never got a proper ending and was released in a pretty bad way with those "movies".
If it would air on Netflix or another streaming site, it could success this time, though.
I wonder what will start filming first, this series or "Attrition"? I hope it's the latter, it already had a long pre-production phase.

From the brochure:

This year we are producing an incredibly exciting, 12 part cutting-edge TV series with the renowned martial arts and action star, Steven Seagal. This $14m series will be shot predominately in Macau and Hong Kong, together with New York, Moscow, Marbella and other recognisable European cities.

$14 million for 12 episodes is probably not a lot compared with some of the television series these days.
Wonder if they will release them as 2 episodes per movie dvd like they did for True Justice.
Looking forward to it though if it is something different.
With the sales brochure stating 2 episodes will be filmed in each country, my first thought also ran to True Justice and its release format. I believe you may be correct.

We still don't have any of the True Justice DVD/blurays in the states. That was a horrible rollout. Hope this is different!
The 6 True Justice DVDs are available through Amazon.ca, or, I believe many, if not all, are listed on the U.S. Amazon site and can be ordered from individual companies that stock the Canadian releases. I ordered mine through Amazo.ca with no problems.

Any new information about this being a "go", or a filming date? Thanks for providing the sales brochure :)
