After reading all the Storm books and stories, I can see where this would be a very good show with similarities to Castle. Derrick and Clara with their on again/off again, love/hate relationship, Derrick's humor, and his Dad. The premise is there for a very good show IMO

From the lack of response I'm going to guess no one here is watching (which would be a shame. It's a fun show.) But if anyone is and is interested in being a part of a Reckless round table over at TV Fanatic just respond to this thread or send me a message.
We have not had cable for over 10 years. We bought several of those digital converter boxes a few years ago when the government mandated all the broadcast signals had to be converted from analog to digital. We use that box with a digital antenna; we get only local channels but it gives us pretty much everything we need. Only thing I'm missing is the new Dallas on TNT, and now Outlander on Starz. Hoping they will become available on DVD.
I believe all new televisions sold today already have built-in digital tuners, so the converter box is no longer necessary, unless you have an older television. Don't know if the boxes are available any longer.
Castle's Derrick Storm Novels Being Developed Into New ABC Series
That Nikki Heat movie may have gone straight to DVD, but the future looks rosier for another of novelist Richard Castle’s creations.
With Castle creator Andrew W. Marlowe and executive producer Terri Edda Miller on board to serve as EPs, ABC is in the early stages of developing a new series based on Derrick Storm, the P.I.-turned-CIA freelancer that serves as the focus of Rick’s other bread-and-butter, our sister site Variety reports. Gregory Poirier, the creator of ABC’s Ashley Judd drama Missing, would pen the pilot. In “real” life, Hyperion Books has published several Derrick Storm mysteries, including Storm Front, A Raging Storm and A Brewing Storm, all with author “Richard Castle”/Nathan Fillion pictured on the book jacket.
ABC Developing Series Based on Castle's Derrick Storm Novels
The Derrick Storm novels penned by fictional character Richard Castle (Nathan Fillion) on Castle may soon be getting their own standalone series. ABC is developing a show based on the best-selling mystery books, which have been published in real life, Variety reports. Gregory Poirier (Missing) is writing the pilot and executive-producing with Castle creator Andrew Marlowe (who announced this summer that he's stepping down as primary showrunner) and his wife, executive producer Terri Edda Miller.
Derrick Storm, the hero of the novels, is a spy who helps the CIA with secret missions.
ABC Developing ‘Derrick Storm’ Series Based on Richard Castle Novels
This is meta: ABC is in the early stages of developing a drama series based on the “Derrick Storm” series of mystery novels penned by Richard Castle, the author played by Nathan Fillion in the Alphabet’s drama “Castle.” Drama vet Gregory Poirier is writing the pilot for ABC Studios and will exec produce with “Castle” creator/exec producer Andrew Marlowe and exec producer Terri Edda Miller. The husband-and-wife writing and producing team is developing the project through their MilMar Pictures banner, which has an overall deal with ABC Studios. The “Derrick Storm” novels that have been referenced on “Castle” have been published in real life under the name of Richard Castle. The Derrick Storm character is a spy who gets called on by the CIA for mysterious missions. The project is not envisioned as a “Castle” spinoff, however. “Castle” is heading into its seventh season on ABC after reaching its highest ratings to date in season six. The show has a dedicated fan base that have pushed the “Derrick Storm” novels to best-seller status. Poirier was the creator/exec producer of ABC’s Ashley Judd drama “Missing” that aired in the 2011-12 season. He also developed drama projects last year at ABC and NBC.
Question: We know that the season opener of Castle starts right where we left off in the finale, but is there a time jump after those first initial scenes? —Rachael Ausiello: Yes, the Sept. 29 premiere features a time jump — and a rather significant one at that — but my lips are zipped about exactly when in the episode the clocks spring forward. Question: I am dying to know the Castle Season 7 premiere title! —Sandra Ausiello: The opener, which (per ABC) “promises to put Beckett through the toughest case of her career,” is titled… fittingly… “Driven.”
