The Roger Moore fronted 1960 series The Saint is being commissioned by ITV for a pilot order.

The Saint originally run for 6 series from 1962 to 1968 with Moore taking the centre role as Simon templar.  It was then adapted into a movie in 1997 with Val Kilmer portraying the role of one of the world’s most successful thieves who was able to change his identity, and took on the name of different saints.

The new pilot order is set to be penned by by Ed Whitmore (Arthur & George) and Chris Lunt (Prey).

Whitemore recently said, “There is a post-Breaking Bad appetite for morally grey characters. Simon Templar is a kind of Robin Hood figure – he’s timeless.”
