'Knight Rider' Movie, And Possible Series Coming To NBC

'Variety' reports NBC is working on a two-hour movie, which will function as a pilot, for a 'Transformers'-inspired version of 80s hit 'Knight Rider'.

The success of 'Transformers' is said to have played a part in NBC's decision to revive 'Knight Rider', along with the fact that the costs for special effects have come down enough that it's possible to have a weekly series in which cars shift shapes.

Not to mention they can get an sponsorship from an automaker to be the single brand of the new K.I.T.T, similar to what 'Transformers' did with GM.

'Knight Rider' originaly aired on NBC from 1982 to 1986. It starred David Hasselhoff as Michael Knight, a kind of modern-day 'knight' who drove K.I.T.T, a talking car with artificial intelligence.

Word is if the movie works, a new 'Knight Rider' series could be on the air as early as next fall.
