I assume they mean "direct series" as in the pilot episode? Right?
http://www.comicbookmovie.com/fansit.../news/?a=73420As the 23rd James Bond film Skyfall continues its monster box office run in theatres, writers of the film, Neal Purvis and Robert Wade, are moving on to a new project - Barbarella. The upcoming television series from Gaumont International Television will feature a character from the science fiction comic book created by Jean-Claude Forest in 1962. Also, Drive helmer Nicolas Winding Refn will direct the series, and he will also be executive producer along Martha De Laurentiis. In 1968, Jane Fonda portrayed the character in the Roger Vadim-directed big screen adaptation.
