David Hasselhoff is set to star in a new crime drama.
The 'Britain's Got Talent' judge - who shot to fame in the 80s playing Michael Knight in 'Knight Rider' - is working with ITV on a new programme based on classic US series 'The Equalizer', which featured the late Edward Woodward.
He said: "I'm developing some more TV shows right now, more along the lines of 'The Equalizer'. You know, like a cool, undercover cop. I like that stuff."
In the original show, Edward - who died in 2009 - played an ageing New York vigilante with a mysterious past.
As well as the TV drama, David also has a new film and reality TV show coming out.
He explained to The Sun newspaper: "I can't say too much about the film, but it's funny.
"The reality show's called 'Same Name'. I switched places with another David Hasselhoff and lived in Texas with his family while he went on tour for me and lived with my family in Los Angeles."
The 58-year-old star also denied claims he was to be axed from 'Britain's Got Talent' - in which he features alongside Amanda Holden and Michael McIntyre on the show's judging panel - saying: "It's all rubbish. The ratings are huge. I got a 48 per cent audience share.
"A 48 share is off the charts. Or maybe that should be Hoff the charts."
