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.
