Another Knight Rider Reboot is Coming


Machinima announced today that it has partnered with YOMYOMF, Justin Lin and NBCUniversal Brand Development to produce a digital reboot of the ’80s NBC television series Knight Rider.

“Knight Rider is an iconic franchise whose concepts of AI and autonomous vehicles were science fiction in the 1980s and are now science fact,” said Gutstein. “Justin is one of the leading storytellers of his generation and we couldn’t be more excited to work with him on re-invigorating Knight Rider for a new generation of fans.”

Knight Rider was created and produced by Glen A. Larson and originally premiered in 1982 with David Hasselhoff as Michael Knight, a police detective with a talking and highly weaponized car named KITT. A sequel series debuted in 1997 called Team Knight Rider with a reboot airing in 2008.

YOMYOMF and Lin will produce the new digital series that is in active development for a potential 2017 launch date.
