Description: The show will be a reboot of the original puppet and scale model based TV action series ‘Thunderbirds’, which ran for 32 episodes from 1965 to 1966. Despite only running for two seasons, the show developed a cult following which exists in young and old to this day. Since first being broadcast way back in the 60’s, each episode has been repeated many times through the decades with a film even being released in 2004.
In keeping some small links with tradition, the new series will also be filmed using scale model sets, but will now feature computer generated animation as well. TAG is scheduled to run for 26, 30 minute episodes once it begins airing in the UK on CITV in 2015.
