Pierce Brosnan returns to TV for the first time in nearly 30 years

Pierce Brosnan is making his return to TV nearly 30 years after his appearance in Remington Steele.
The Navan-born actor is set to star in a new AMC series called The Sun.
Brosnan hasn't starred in a TV show since his turn in the hit '80's adventure drama Remington Steele, which he left in 1987.
He enjoyed a successful film career which saw him play James Bond four times so we doubt there was much of a need for him to return to TV.
So what's made the Hollywood star change his mind?
The 63-year-old will play Eli McCullough, the patriarch of a Texas family, who was kidnapped and raised among the Comanche Native American tribe. The show is described as a "multi-generational epic tale of the story of America’s birth as a superpower through the bloody rise and fall of one Texas family".
The Goldeneye star recently completed filming The Foreigner, a Martin Campbell film co-starring Jackie Chan.
Brosnan also stars in the upcoming thriller I.T. produced by his production company, Irish DreamTime, alongside Voltage Pictures and Friendly Films.
