Hollywood star George Clooney plans to turn the OCEAN'S ELEVEN movie franchise into a television series.

The actor-director - who is preparing for the upcoming sequel, OCEAN'S THIRTEEN - won't reprise his role as Danny Ocean in the small screen adventure, but plans to have a hands-on role behind the scenes.

He says, "It's a basic idea that would make a great 13-episode TV show. I don't plan to appear though, but I will be the show's producer."
