"Knight Rider" Races to NBC

kitt.jpgNBC sure likes its remakes. First the network re-launches "Bionic Woman," and now it has announced plans to introduce a 21st century version of "Knight Rider."

The series, which originally ran on NBC from 1982 until 1986, featured David Hasselhoff as the driver of a futuristic, talking car named K.I.T.T. According to Variety, NBC plans on introducing the show as a TV movie (commonly known as a telepic) sometime later this season. Telepics have virtually disappeared from networks and are rarely used anymore to launch new TV shows. But if the movie pulls in viewers, it could be picked up as a new series for Fall 2008.

Entertainment Weekly reports Doug Liman, director of movies like "The Bourne Identity" and "Mr. & Mrs. Smith," will produce the series. Expect the premise of the original show to remain the same, but with much more advanced special effects.

It's good to know that if "America's Got Talent" falls through, the Hoff will have another show to fall back on. --Chris Sardelli

OK... I know I was down on "Bionic Woman" and now I have added it to my TiVo, but I really REFUSE to get sucked into this one.
