ITV Studios is teaming up with Pukeko Pictures to make a brand new Thunderbirds TV series. They are bringing on board WETA Workshop (The Lord of the Rings, Avatar) to re-imagine the series. The plan is to shoot with CG and models. Rib Hoegee (Team Titans, Ben 10) will be the head writer.
The series will be 26 half hour episodes and is scheduled to air in 2015, 50 years after the original Thunderbirds debut.
