Who Says TV Is Out of Ideas?

‘Hart to Hart’ Gay Couple Remake Set At NBC: EXCLUSIVE: The Harts are back, with a twist. NBC has put in development a new take on the 1979 ABC mystery/adventure drama, which starred Robert Wagner and Stefanie Powers. The reboot—which revolves around a gay couple—hails from producer Carol Mendelsohn and Sony TV, whose predecessor Columbia Pictures produced the original series with Spelling-Goldberg Prods.

Give me a huge break. I never watched the original and the chance I will watch the reboot is nil.

Repeat what Jeffrey said.

Male or female couple?

Jeffrey Meyerson said...

Male, apparently.

Deb said...

Well, in that case, there won't be much on-screen kissing.

The only thing really interesting about the original--which I did not know until much later--is that Lionel Stander, who played Max, also played Archie Goodwin in a couple of Nero Wolfe movies (Meet Nero Wolfe, 1936 and The League of Frightened Men, 1937). Meet Nero Wolfe was awful (and in it Stander was awful as Archie); I've never found a copy of The League of Frightened Men.
