Tidbits from Around the Dial

Saint Strikes Back—Leslie Charteris’ long-running book series character “The Saint” is returning to TV. The Robin Hood-esque super-spy/super-thief was brought to life, famously, by Roger Moore in the ’60s. A 1997 movie version starring Val Kilmer failed to revive the franchise. But now a new weekly take is being lensed. It stars Adam Rayner (“Hunted,” “HawthoRNe”) as do-gooder Simon Templar and Eliza Dushku (“Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” “Dollhouse”) as his on-again-off-again love interest. No word on where it might be airing, but producers are screening it this month at the MIPTV market in Cannes.
