A TV show based around the hit Terminator films is in the early stages of production.

The show will pick up the action at the end of Terminator 2: Judgment Day and will focus on Linda Hamilton's heroine Sarah Connor and her son John.

C2 Pictures producer James Middleton, who worked on Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines, tells magazine Variety about his new project: "She has the weight of the world on her shoulders and she also has to raise a 14-year-old son who may be the salvation of the world."

And fans of the Arnold Schwarzenegger-fronted franchise can expect a high-quality script from the pen of a scriptwriter with an excellent sci-fi pedigree.

Josh Friedman, who wrote the original draft for Steven Spielberg's War of the Worldsadaptation, says, "(My) challenge is trying to figure out how to reinterpret (Connor) for television.

"The last thing I want to do is take a title and exploit it. The show needs to stand on its own while still being respectful of the franchise."

Reports indicate neither Hamilton nor Edward Furlong will reprise their roles for TV.
