With the opening of “The A Team” this week we thought we would talk to our good friend Stephen J. Cannell, who was the creator of the original “A-Team television show about the new movie.
Now according to Stephen, this was not the first time an A-Team movie has been attempted to be made. The film was originally sold years ago, and was supposed to be produced by the Fox corporation but was scrapped do to an insufficient script. Finally Stephen came into contact with director Joe Carnahan, and producers Tony and Ridley Scott. While we had him on the phone we had to ask how he came up with the idea of The A-Team. Stephen said that he pitched the idea as a show about mercenary’s for hire to former NBC President Brandon Tartikoff. That original idea became the basis for what we now know as the A-Team.
