The Equalizer is a franchise that started with the 1985 series of the same name, starring Edward Woodward as central protagonist Robert McCall, an agent with a chequered past aiming to save those in need. Aided by a group of sometimes-mysterious contacts, some of whom dated back to his spying days, McCall traversed the streets of New York City, delivered justice upon bullies, corrupt police and politicians, hoodlums, mobsters, and more.
Since then, the TV series has sparked two box office hit movies in The Equalizer and The Equalizer 2 with Denzel Washington donning the cap as Robert McCall. In 2020, the franchise is set to return to its roots in TV with Queen Latifah executive producing and starring in the 2020 series as Robyn McCall, an agent with a mysterious past aiming to bring justice to society.
