Nikita (re-titled La Femme Nikita in some markets) is a Canadian television series loosely based on the premise of Besson's film, with the added complication that the convicted murderer (here played by Peta Wilson) was wrongly convicted and has never killed anyone before being recruited as an assassin. It ran from 1997 to 2001 and was created by Joel Surnow and Robert Cochran who went on to create 24.
