There’s No Room for Amateurs as The CW is Ready to Unleash the PROFESSIONALS in October!

This series has been kicking around for a few years now and I even did a post for it when I went on to my new platform back in 2018. The show is called Professionals and it stars Tom Welling, who is best known for Smallville as well as Brendan Fraser who is certainly having a career resurgence as of late. The series was even released overseas but now North America will finally be able to catch the high octane thrills as The CW is set to unleash it next month.

Official Synopsis:

Professionals “follows Vincent Corbo (Welling), a top-tier security operative, who is paid to protect the interests of rich and powerful clients by any means necessary – legal or not. After a next-gen medical satellite explodes on launch, Corbo is hired by the rocket’s designer – billionaire futurist Peter Swann (Fraser) — who suspects sabotage. Complicating Corbo’s new gig is his former paramour and now Swann’s fiancée, medical visionary Dr. Grace Davila (Anaya), who is racing to help stave off a global catastrophe. As Corbo and his team of veteran security professionals investigate the rocket disaster, they expose a lethal conspiracy of Swann’s corporate rivals, corrupt government officials, and a shadowy crime syndicate — all working to destroy Swann and take control of his tech empire. Worse, Corbo must also contend with a rogue Europol agent (Ken Duken) who is hellbent on busting him for past sins.”

The series also stars Wonder Woman’s Elena Anaya as well as Saïd Taghmaoui (John Wick 3), Lisa Loven Kongsli (Wonder Woman), August Wittgenstein (The Crown), Stevel Marc (The Mauritanian), Tanya Van Graan (Raised by Wolves), and Nic Rasenti (Outlander).

Professionals was shot on location in South Africa and Ireland and is also a co-production of both territories.

I was a big Smallville fan and it will be interesting to see Welling take on this more traditional action oriented role. Going weapons free looks like it suits him. Like I said, Fraser has seen a resurgence as of late with Doom Patrol and now his film The Whale and he is always a welcome addition to any film or series. I’m intrigued although I wish it was going the streaming route instead of network TV. Fingers crossed.

Professionals hits The CW on October 11th. Check out an earlier trailer for it below while we wait for a more official one!
