KITT Xtreme Makeover

For reasons unknown, we haven't really been tracking the development of NBC's upcoming TV movie revamp KNIGHT RIDER. So for those of you curious of what's going on on that front, here's the dealio. Firstly, as can be seen below, KITT has reincarnated as a Shelby GT500KR Mustang. Secondly, Will Arnett has been cast as the voice of KITT, which should give you a right good tickle. Thirdly, here's a little plot breakdown:

Sarah Graiman (Russo) is a 24-year-old Ph.D. candidate at Stanford University, following in her genius father Charles’ (Davison) footsteps. But when men attempt to abduct her, Sarah receives a mysterious call from KITT warning her that he’s a creation of Charles, who also invented the first KITT 25 years ago—and that her father is in serious danger.

Sarah and KITT track down her best friend from childhood, Mike Tracer (Bruening), a 23-year-old ex-Army Ranger, whom Sarah hasn’t seen since he left home at 18. Having served in Iraq, Mike is now jaded and lost and initially resistant. Eventually he agrees to help Sarah and the two set out to discover who’s behind the attempt to procure KITT and find Charles.

Finally, The Hoff himself, David Hasselhoff, who was KITT's original companion, will be making a cameo as his original character. Doesn't get much better than that, folks. The film going to series depends largely on the viewership of this TV movie so make sure to tune in. It premieres February 17th on NBC.
