Pierce Brosnan's pre-007 Tv private eye Remington Steele is heading back to the small screen, according to online reports.

Bosses at U.S. network NBC are developing a half-hour comedy that will act as a sequel to the 1980s series.

The daughter of Brosnan's character will front the show and reopen the Remington Steele Detective Agency, according to Deadline.com.

The original Remington Steele had a five-year run on Nbc from 1982 to 1987.
