As part of their exclusive option arrangement, the partners will jointly develop the series and shop it to broadcasters in the U.S. and internationally.

Stallone is in talks to participate on a "creative level" and potentially reprise his iconic role as Rambo.

"The ability to fuse the big screen and the small screen through Avi’s feature film expertise and eOne’s domestic production capabilities and international distribution infrastructure, makes for a highly complementary partnership," said eOne Television CEO John Morayniss in a statement Wednesday.
