I think they shot a pilot for a "Time Tunnel" reboot but it never got aired.
Yeah, in 2002. It was included in volume two of the DVD release. In fact, right before Ron Moore castrated Starbuck, The Time Tunnel producers did the same for Tony Nelson, making her Antonia "Toni" Nelson.
Was it really that long ago?? I'm pretty sure there was discussion in SF&F at the time and I wasn't a member here in 2002.

Time Tunnel was twice developed as a remake series. The first time was in 2002 when Fox ordered a pilot but didn't pick it up as a series. The second time was when the Sci-Fi Channel announced it was one of the shows they had in development to potentially air during the 2006/2007 season. However, Sci-Fi didn't order it to pilot, let alone to series.

Come to think of it, wasn't there talk of a Lost In Space reboot, minus Dr Smith?

Yes, that was shot as a pilot for the WB in late 2003 for the 2004-2005 season, but it wasn't picked up as a series. The pilot was directed by John Woo and starred Brad Johnson as John Robinson, Jayne Brook as Maureen Robinson and Adrianne Palicki as Judy.

During that same development cycle the WB also ordered a pilot of a Dark Shadows remake starring Alec Newman, Marley Shelton and Martin Donovan. That wasn't picked up as a series either.

Re: Failed reboots/remakes?

Yet another Dark Shadows remake? Yikes. Was it ever shot?

Out of morbid curiosity, I'd like to get a look at that LIS remake.

Re: Failed reboots/remakes?

The pilot for Dark Shadows was shot, yes. Three SFF pilots were shot for the WB during that development cycle: The Robinsons: Lost in Space, Dark Shadows, and Global Frequency. They didn't order any of them to series, which was a big surprise since Dark Shadows was thought to be a slam dunk to be picked up.

Re: Failed reboots/remakes?

Global Frequency? Based on the Warren Ellis book? I'd like to see that, too; that was a good book.

Maybe these will turn up somewhere; I'd like to get a look at them.

Re: Failed reboots/remakes?

Yeah, based on the Warren Ellis comic book. Most who have seen the pilot for that (which starred Michelle Forbes) give it high marks and express disappointment that it wasn't ordered to series. The pilots for The Robinsons: Lost in Space and Global Frequency can be found via the method that is not to be discussed. I don't know if the same goes for the Dark Shadows pilot.

Re: Failed reboots/remakes?

This "Robinson's: Lost in Space" pilot can be found online (if you know where to look) and it is actually very, very good.

Yep, I'm in Boston (just South of it, actually). I'm an early bird; I wake up at 4am just about every day.That's how I amassed my huge collection of sunrise photos.

Dragnet...hmm this game is sort of fun
I was gonna say the movie Dragnet was a sequel...but I forgot Ed O'Neil's version.
The movie *was* a sequel. It was in the same continuity as both of the Jack Webb TV series. Aykroyd's Joe Friday is the nephew of Webb's, plus Bill Gannon (Friday's partner in Dragnet '67) returns, now a Captain.

So the Dragnet movie wasn't a reboot or a remake.

And the sets from that series eventually wound up on nuBSG where they were used for the Battlestar Pegasus scenes.

Re: Failed reboots/remakes?

^^ Kind of appropriate.

nuLIS is on YouTube. What a bloody horrible mess. John Robinson is now a famous warrior, veteran of an alien invasion, and so is Don. The aliens, surprise, return. There are endless, interminable scenes of ray gun shootouts, space battles and splosions (punctuated by occasional scenes of mundane family drama). In this version, the ship has a huge crew, not just the Robinsons, so we can see lots of people die. They even-- wait for it-- added an additional Robinson offspring just so they could kill him off.

Definitely brought to you by the same mentality that gave us nuBSG and nuTrek; luckily this one died stillborn.

but this time, rightly so. I only saw three episodes, but this version was a mere shadow of the original, which is odd considering the creator is the same. Jeremy Piven was absolutely brilliant in the original.
