That's what NBC's "Taken" TV adaptation intends to show. The first trailer for the series introduces a younger Brian Mills (Clive Standen), a former Green Beret who is recruited by the CIA after he saves a train full of passengers from armed gunman. But there is one person he couldn't save — someone very close to him. And now, he's ready to hone those skills to protect other innocent lives.
"Taken" is just the latest movie to be adapted into a series ("Training Day" is coming to CBS soon). Luc Besson, who wrote the first movie and produced the others, will serve as executive producer. But it'll be interesting to see if it's as popular without Neeson's particular set of acting skills.
