NBC is bringing back “Knight Rider,” the 1980s hit action-drama about a man and his talking car. Variety reports that the network is preparing a two-hour pilot, produced by Doug Liman, for later this season. If successful, the new “Knight Rider” could be on the 2008 fall schedule. Let’s hope that original star David Hasselhoff will not be behind the wheel. The success of “Transformers” helped inspire NBC’s decision. The belief is that smallscreen f/x can handle a weekly series.
