Well, since it's Friday, our reboots have doubled today. I have news on not just one TV reboot from our past but two! First up, it's Charmed! Charmed was on the WB back in the day and starred Shannen Doherty, Alyssa Milano and Holly Marie Combs, and then Rose McGowen later in the series. Well, it's coming back on the CW, set in the present day, "This fierce, funny, feminist reboot of the original series centers on three sisters in a college town who discover they are witches. Between vanquishing supernatural demons, tearing down the patriarchy, and maintaining familial bonds, a witch’s work is never done.” No word on whether or not any of the original cast members will sign on.
Our second TV reboot to tell you about was one of my favorite silly tv shows in the 80's! Believe it or not, it's the Greatest American Hero! Though this time, it's going to have a very different spin on it. Instead of a male high school teacher, the show will center around "Meera, a 30-year-old woman who loves tequila and karaoke and has spent her life searching and failing to find meaning, much to the chagrin of her traditional Indian-American family. An inexplicable event occurs that will change the course of Meera’s life forever: She is entrusted with a super suit to protect the planet. Meera may have finally found purpose, but the world has never been in more unreliable hands." Oh I'm definitely watching this one! Definitely!!! What about you? Do either of these shows interest you? Or do you just wish that writers and TV folk would find some new stuff to put on?? Let me know what you think on the 98-3 TRY facebook page!
