Another English actor hopes that the success of Knight Rider could revive his own classic Glen Larson show: Simon MacCorkindale believes Manimal could be ripe for reappraisal and revival. He tells the Derbyshire Evening Telegraph, “It’s something that has been on my mind for a while now, but there would be rights to negotiate and plenty of other issues to address. Once the [stage tour] of Sleuth is over it is something I want to take a serious look at.”
