“[P]roducers will attempt to sell this pilot to networks internationally,” reports Double O Section blogger Tanner. “Hopefully it sells and we end up with a whole new Saint series!” Tanner, for one, has high hopes for this Simon West-directed project. He writes:
“I love that it uses the familiar Saint theme music. I love that they found a believable way to get the Saint into a dinner jacket in this day and age. I love that there’s a fight on a funicular! I love the international locations and the high productions values. It looks like a very slick production, for sure. And new Simon Templar Adam Rayner, from what I can tell based on these short clips, looks good in the role! (Needs a shave, though.) Eliza Dushku looks great, too, as the Saint’s on-and-off girlfriend from the Leslie Charteris novels, Patricia Holm.But hey, you know what I really like best? This pilot managed to find noteworthy roles for two men who’ve already played Templar on the small screen, Ian Ogilvy and Roger Moore.
