Notes from Producer Brian Clemens’ writing brief for The Professionals:
- Any political motivations must be subjugated to the ordinary human involvement.
- Keep the relationship with Ray and Bodie – with Cowley – firmly in the foreground.
- Steal situations from the headlines.
- Keep it moving. Fast.
The Professionals was producer Brian Clemens’ follow-up to his worldwide hit, The Avengers. It was launched by LWT in 1977, and Michael Feeney Callan joined the writing team in 1979.
