Action Team is a spoof spy action-thriller series following the exploits of a top-secret team of special agents working for the British government and charged with saving the world.

The show is made by the creative team behind Murder In Successville. ITV says: "Think The Naked Gun meets The Bourne Identity in this high octane, big scale comedy featuring a dysfunctional group of spies. Fast paced, high concept and crammed with silly jokes."

Co-writer and star Tom Davis says: "Every year I sit there as the bookies predict who they think will play the next James Bond and I'm always left off the list, so I've decided to do something about it."
