Sci-Fi Wire Predict Knight Rider’s Success

Sci-Fi Wire are running a feature that takes a look at the new generation of science fiction and fantasy TV shows debuting this fall, and make a prediction of Knight Rider‘s success:

“Last spring, NBC aired a TV movie/backdoor pilot to revive the franchise that made David Hasselhoff a star. The network is following up with a full-fledged series about the iconic car known as K.I.T.T. and the humans who run him. Equipped with state-of-the art technology, artificial intelligence and the voice of Val Kilmer, K.I.T.T. is partnered with Justin Bruening as Mike Tracer, the estranged son of Hasselhoff’s Michael Knight, who continues his father’s legacy by fighting bad guys on the open road. The movie did well enough, so there may be an audience for this show. The new show runner, Las Vegas‘ Gary Scott Thompson, has revamped the series to amp up the action, and he’s added a bunch of new characters. Plus, this is a title with some history — but so was Bionic Woman, so that’s no guarantee of ratings success. Odds of success: 5 to 1″
