Proving that old can be new again, NBC has given the remake of Knight Rider
a series order, says Variety
. The show was given a test-drive as a two-hour made-for-television movie back in February, and high ratings made everyone at the network drool and thumbs-up more K.I.T.T. and company.Variety
speculates Knight Rider
will be parked in a Friday-night time slot. The new Knight Rider
retains the team of a man and a talking car (now voiced by Val Kilmer) from the original, but throws in contemporary times and new characters. An official announcement is expected Wednesday when NBC announces its 2008-2009 schedule! The original show was great and I am sure this remake will be great as well!
