Principal photography for The Professionals is currently taking place in South Africa and Ireland. Lisa Loven Kongsli stars in the show along side Tom Welling and Brendan Fraser.
The Professionals is a loose remake of Jeff Most’s action feature Soldiers of Fortune from 2012. It is set against a backdrop of international espionage, corporate sabotage and a privately funded space race in the near future. The first three episodes will be directed by BAFTA-nominated filmmaker Bharat Nalluri. The ten-part series was commissioned by Viaplay, with German broadcaster RTL II pre-buying the free-TV rights. An official release date is yet to be disclosed.
