Yesterday was the best day I had all week. I learned that NBC is bringing back Knight Rider, the television series based on the the super-cool 1982 Trans Am, named KITT (Knight Industries Two Thousand), originally driven by crime-fighter Michael Knight (David Hasselhoff). Variety reports:
NBC is bringing back “Knight Rider,” tapping Doug Liman to produce a “Transformers”-inspired reworking of the 1980s hit action-drama series about a man and his indestructible supercar. Peacock is readying a two-hour backdoor pilot for the project, with tentative plans to air it as a telepic later this season. Liman is open to the idea of directing, assuming his feature sked allows. If the telepic clicks, a new-model “Knight Rider” could be on the air as early as next fall.
Knight Rider was my passion during its series run, from 1982 to 1986. I hope they bring it back and really blow it out. I just joined the Facebook group Bring back KNIGHT-RIDER. Knight Rider Online has a good page of related links.
