The Greatest American Hero has some new company. Deadline reports George Wendt, Gia Sandhu, and Zenobia Shroff have joined the ABC reboot pilot.
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.
ABC‘s reboot pilot of The Greatest American Hero stars Hannah Simone as “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.”
In the reboot, George Wendt has been cast as “Meera’s (Simone) boss, Bob Rice”, Gia Sandhu will play “play Mona, Meera’s pretty, Type A sister,” and Zenobia Shroff will portray “Leena, Meera’s elegant, inscrutable mother.”
