    NBC to bring Back Knight Rider

    Sweet. First Bionic woman now Knight Rider. Man its like reliving my childhood lately.

    http://tv.msn.com/tv/article.aspx?news=277471&GT1=7703

    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.

    NBC is readying a two-hour standalone pilot for the project, with tentative plans to air it as a movie later this season. Liman is open to the idea of directing, assuming his feature schedule allows. If the television movie clicks, a new-model "Knight Rider" could be on the air as early as next fall.

    Dave Andron ("Raines") is writing the pilot script and will serve as supervising producer alongside exec producers Liman and Dave Bartis ("The O.C.," "Heist") for Universal Media Studios and Dutch Oven Productions.

    The success of "Transformers" had a role in inspiring NBC Entertainment chief Ben Silverman's decision to revive "Knight." The thinking is that small-screen special visual effects have advanced to the point where it'd be feasible to have a weekly series in which cars shift shapes.

    It's also likely the new show will explore the idea of "evil" cars to offset the heroic talking K.I.T.T. car of the original series, which starred David Hasselhoff. That said, the series is expected to essentially remain focused on the story of a single man fighting for justice with the help of his super-advanced car.

    Oh great, we get to listen to the "talking car" again. Next thing you know they'll bring back "Mr. Ed" the talking horse.

    sooooo true.. they can't find something to entrap us like Lost, or south park or even the simpsons

    so they go back to what was succesfull and give us regergated history.
