Danger 5 is an Australian action comedy television series on SBS One which premiered on 27 February 2012. The pulp magazine-inspired series was created by Dario Russo and David Ashby.
The show is set in a bizarre 1960s interpretation of World War II and follows a group of five international spies on a mission to kill Adolf Hitler and thwart his plans of world domination.
After the success of the web series Italian Spiderman created by Alrugo Entertainment (Russo, Ashby, Tait Wilson, Will Spartalis and Boris Repasky), Australian broadcaster SBS became interested in turning the project into a interstitial television show. Due to ownership and copyright issues within the production team, the project fell through. Nonetheless, SBS were still interested in Russo and Ashby and in 2009 offered a development deal for a new show. Russo and Ashby submitted three concepts that, regardless what was chosen, they would be happy to make. Danger 5 was the chosen concept, the most ambitious and dense of the three.
