ABC has some great news. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the network has ordered a pilot for a female-led version of The Greatest American Hero.
The original comedy-drama starred William Katt as Ralph Hinkley, a substitute teacher who acquires a super-powered suit that allows him to fight crime and injustice. The series ran on ABC from 1981 to 1983.
From Fresh Off the Boat producers Rachna Fruchbom and Nahnatchka Khan, ABC‘s Greatest American Hero reboot will center on “Meera, a 30-year-old Indian-American woman from Cleveland, whose talents include tequila drinking and karaoke and not much else. Then some aliens entrust her with a super suit to protect the planet, and the world has never been in more unreliable hands.”
Nahnatchka Khan will produced the ABC pilot alongside 20th Century Fox Television and ABC Studios.
