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.
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!
