A ten-episode National Treasure television series is in the works, with original film series producer Jerry Bruckheimer involved.

Somebody who won’t be involved – well, at least in a lead capacity – is Nicolas Cage as adventurer Benjamin Franklin Gates. Instead, the series will play out from the point of view of 20-year-old Jess Morales, who sets out with a bunch of mates to uncover her mysterious family history and, of course, to recover lost treasure.

According to Deadline, the first episode of the series is set to be directed by Mira Nair (Monsoon Wedding).

There is still hope for Cage fans, however, as a movie sequel has long been in the works and is apparently still a goer. Here’s a reminder of him in action:
