Well, if you are one of those people who can’t stand remakes of classic TV shows, this story should make you happy. The proposed remake of The Rockford Files is dead — at least for the moment.
You may recall that a pilot script was written by House’s David Shore and was filmed for NBC last year starring Dermot Mulroney with Alan Tudyk, Beau Bridges, Alex Fernandez, and Melissa Sagemiller in supporting roles. The network wasn’t thrilled with the finished product and opted not to greenlight it to series. (Perhaps they still feeling singed by the failed attempts to resurrect Bionic Woman and Knight Rider?) NBC entertainment president Angela Bromstad maintained however that they wanted to give the project another try.
