Fox to Give THE GREATEST AMERICAN HERO a Reboot

THE GREATEST AMERICAN HERO of the '80s has returned.

According to Entertainment Weekly, FOX has planned a reboot of Stephen J. Cannell's dramedy series about an average school teacher who discovers a superhero suit that gives him super powers.

Rodney Rothman is set to write the pilot, executive producing with 21 Jump Street duo Phil Lord and Chris Miller (the three subsequently worked together on 22 Jump Street). Also executive producing is Cannell's daughter, Tawnia McKiernan.

The new version of the show is about Isaac who, "has to learn how to use its powers by trial and error because he quickly misplaces the suit's instructions. He also has to deal with a government handler who has very different objectives than him and struggles as to whether should use his newfound gifts to help others or just himself."

GREATEST AMERICAN HERO originally starred William Katt as Ralph Hinkley, and the show ran three seasons.
