NEW GIRL Actress Hannah Simone To Play The Lead In ABC's GREATEST AMERICAN HERO Reboot

Believe it or not, New Girl actress Hannah Simone will soon be walking on air as the Greatest American Hero in ABC's upcoming reboot of the short-lived '80s comedy series. Find out more after the jump...

We recently found out that the Greatest American Hero remake we've been hearing about for years had finally found a home at ABC as a half-hour, single camera comedy series, and now THR reports that the show has found its lead.

British-born Canadian actress/model Hannah Simone (New Girl, Kicking and Screaming) will star as Meera, a "30-year-old woman from Cleveland, whose talents include drinking tequila, singing karaoke and not much else. All that changes when some aliens entrust her with a super suit protect the planet."

The project is being developed by Fresh of The Boat team Nahnatchka Kahn and Rachna Fruchbom, and will be a re-imagining of a short-lived 1980s comedy drama series starring William Katt that has since found something of a cult following.
