Knight Rider is coming back to our television screens or at least he is back on American screens in a new 120 min TV movie soon to air on NBC. KITT has had a bit of a facelift, he’s been blinged up in the guise of a new Ford Mustang (see Youtube video of the unveiling).
NBC has announced some multiplatform goodness in the form of an ‘interactive’ digital KITT car and behind the scenes footage. Not all that groundbreaking, but I can’t help but be a bit excited as I was a huge fan of the 80’s Knight Rider, I grew up on that series. One man (The Hoff), his car (KITT) and needy citizens wanting some Knight Rider protection. Knight Rider was a sort of Robin Hood figure… Without the tights.
NBC seem rather committed to multiplatform support for pretty much all of its output, in The Futon Critics post you can see what they have planned for the year ahead.
