I really liked the original (and sequels), 20-plus years ago. I don't really expect this version to exceed that one, but it might be good. I haven't read anything about it, but it will be interesting to see how they handle the US separation of the legislative and executive, which is so different from the parliamentary system but was so integral to the original.
Is this a limited-length series, or do they plan on keeping it open-ended? If the latter, it knocks my expectations down a notch.
