LEGO MOVIE Directors Remaking THE GREATEST AMERICAN HERO For TV

Phil Lord and Chris Miller, the writing and directing team behind the blockbuster, The LEGO Movie are remaking The Greatest American Hero for Fox. Come check it out.

From 1981 to 1983, ABC ran a superhero television series called The Greatest American Hero. It starred William Katt as Ralph Hinkley/Hanley, Robert Culp as Bill Maxwell and Connie Sellecca as Pam Davidson. While it only lasted a few seasons, its rerun have persevered over the past decades. It is considered a cult classic.

Believe it or not, Fox is gonna take another stab at this premise. The creators of The LEGO Movie, Phil Lord and Chris Miller, will be the executive producers of the project. The show will be an hour-long and "will chronicle inner-city teacher Isaac’s adventures after his discovery of a superhero suit which gives him superhuman abilities." Furthermore,  "Unfortunately for Isaac, he hates wearing the suit, and has to learn how to use its powers by trial and error because he quickly misplaces the suit’s instructions." Isaac will even have his own "government handler" just as the original series had. His main struggles will be "whether he should use his newfound gifts to help others or just himself."

THE GREATEST AMERICAN HERO - Ralph Hinkley (William Katt) is an ordinary school teacher who becomes extraordinary after an encounter with extraterrestrials leaves him with a power suit that transforms him into a superhero! But when he loses the suit's instruction manual, Ralph must learn by trial and error to control the capabilities and powers of his red magic outfit to fight the battle against injustice and crime. Created by legendary writer/producer Stephen J. Cannell, this complete first season collection includes all 8 acclaimed episodes from this multi-Emmy nominated series which co-stars Michael Pare and Faye Grant.
