Has anyone mentioned The CW's latest upcoming remake, The 4400?
CSI is back https://deadline.com/2021/03/csi-ve...DM6iYhf3swEil5OUcur0TQs8guq_Mc2Hs_IOEfVHHiJh4
I guess Law and Order won't be far behind. Chris Noth to the rescue. Jason
There was talk about a Law & Order limited revival where they would bring back actors like Noth and Waterston so that they could get that 21st year and break the Gunsmoke record, which SVU has since broke.
They could still bring it back with six new cheaper actors and it'd be a hit.
And this is why I don't watch much tv..
Law and Order: CSI: Chicago
True Blood, no need for a reboot ,if bringing it back make it a continuation but even that isn't needed.
Law and Order: SVU: NCIS: CSI: NTSF: SD: SUV:: JAG
I really like both of those, especially Magnum PI.
Somehow I missed this from a few days ago: CBS Studios Slams “Fatally Flawed” Lawsuit Over ‘MacGyver’: “Remakes Are Not Spinoffs”.
I would love to know what the exact wording of the agreement is, because a remake is not the same as a spin-off, but it is still a related show and part of the franchise.
They're not as good as the originals, but I find them satisfying light watches.
Yeah, and I would guess it all depends in what vein. A spinoff would be a show set in the same universe that continues on the path of the original, sometimes with a whole new crew and cast of characters, such as TNG, and sometimes which features a character from the original to pass the baton. Whereas, a remake would be remaking those characters with a new cast and new vision, such as BSG, and this I see is where Macguyver falls into, as well as the new Magnum P.I. It's most definitely not a spinoff. It sounds like those who are going after CBS are trying to get around a loophole based on an earlier agreement. I would think that the agreement would have expired long ago.
I had wondered the loose useage of things like "reboot" when they meant sequel and other such nomenclature would eventually come back to bite someone. Looks like CBS is safe here, but they might have their publicity departments be more careful in the future.
CBS just canceled MacGyver
I wonder if the lawsuit played into this decision or are they just making space for CSI and the second FBI spin off?
Tosin Cole (Doctor Who's Ryan Sinclair) has joined the reboot of House Party.
They're making room for the Happy Days remake, where Fonz becomes a police consultant assigned to work with Detective Cunningham.
Fonzarelli will be Cunningham's CI (Confidential Informant) And it will be set in the 70's. The pilot will be directed by Martin Scorsese.
