Pierce Brosnan is working on a return to series television in a new project at Sony Pictures TV.

The former Remington Steele and James Bond star is set to appear and produce a new series about an international operative and problem solver for hire.

The main character (who is not expected to be played by Brosnan) is brought in for high-drama situations like kidnappings and business espionage.  

Sony is taking the series out into the international marketplace before shopping the project domestically.

Executive producers on the project include ER writer-producer Jack Orman, along with Beau St. Clair, Keri Selig and Brosnan.

Brosnan recently appeared in the pilot for Fox's Running Wilde, but has not been a series regular in a show since the 1980s hit Steele. The show paved the way for Brosnan landing the role of Bond in four films in the franchise.
