They asked me to reboot the title sequence like they reboot the series.
Introducing the female character Caterina as real partner to Frank Martin.
My idea was to keep action and cars and bring some "Emma Peel and Steed" references.
All based on time and speed concept.
A great experience to work closely with Frank Spotnitz (the show runner of the series and X-files legend).
I have directed the sequence, which was shot in Prague at Barrandov studio during the last days of series shooting.
