A US remake of Sky1's Mad Dogs is reportedly in the works.

The Shield creator Shawn Ryan revealed that he is developing a new version of the UK drama on web-series Kevin Pollak's Chat Show.

"I'm working with a British writer - Cris Cole - who had a mini-series in Great Britain called Mad Dogs that we're looking to make as a mini-series over here," Ryan confirmed.

The original Mad Dogs starred John Simm, Marc Warren, Max Beesley and Philip Glenister as four middle-aged friends who take a holiday to Majorca but find themselves drawn into a world of crime and corruption.

Two four-part series have aired on Sky1 in the UK, with a third run on the way.

Shawn Ryan's past credits include FX cop drama The Shield, Fox's The Chicago Code and the recently-axed ABC submarine thriller Last Resort.

The showrunner is also currently working with Eddie Murphy to develop a new Beverly Hills Cop TV series for CBS.
