NBC bringing back Knight Rider

Hello. I just found out today (5 years have not had cable limited to what I see on cable) NBC plans on bringing back Knight Rider. It is going to be called "Rider" and will be starring Justin Bruening (currently on All My Children, not that I expect any of you guys to know, but if you do, he is Jaime) as Michael Knight's son. A concept Knight Rider drawn by Kevin Morgan who has been working with producers, might be possible KITT. It was inspired by Transformers the movie to make a come back. They are suppose to be running a Pilot and then by fall 2008 have a new series. Did anybody else hear anything? Maybe I will be getting cable for that. I miss STEELERS games & PINKS too, yeah cable is on my to-do list, maybe satellite.

Does this mean there might potentially be a new Trans Am? Morgan's concept looks pretty awesome.

Formerly defunct.

From what I am reading the script is currently in the works. There is suppose to be a pilot 2 hour feature sometime this year. It is going to be aired as a special feature movie. There is definitely going to be a new KITT its just a matter of what he looks like. They say the season is going to be running by Fall 2008. I can't wait. My sons even hum the theme tune.

They are also considering KITT to "transform" into something similar to an Autobot. Also thinking about adding "bad cars" to enhance the digital capabilities. It is still up in the air as previous comebacks for Knight Rider fell through. If the pilot movie does well there is no question it will be brought back if the pilot does poorly bringing it back is on the fence.

Well NBC better pray they can get a production prototype of a 5th gen Camaro to start converting it into a TA; because the cars will not roll out till near the end of the year. Plus, it would suck if they spent the money to do a conversion on a prototype (if they could get it, or pull a Bumblebee) and never become a series after the pilot like Knight Rider 2000 did.

I would guess a C6 vette or something else more streamlined. Plus I could always see the red scanner lights in the Z06 front scoop in my head.

They have been talking about bringing Knight Rider back for years, I don't think Transformers has much to do with it.

Yes, it's the opti.

As long as Hoff is left back in the 80s, it could be a good show.

I found $80 in my jeans pocket. The kid in me said "buy nerf guns and candy!" But then the adult in me said "buy vodka, nerf guns and candy!"

First, I love Knight Rider. Always have, always will. Remeber though, that although we all KNOW KITT was a T/A, it was never actually stated in the show and all of the badging from the car was removed. Also, there are many things wrong with that concept chop...There's a thunderchicken on the hood, no foglights, the wheels are ALL wrong (KITT was not Smokey and the Bandit) and the same thing for the fender vents. I personally would like to see kit remade as a black on black C6...Maybe a Z06.
