Remington Steele Reboot
I recently asked Doris Roberts, Mildred Krebs of TV's Remington Steele, if she would like to appear in the reboot of the show. She said, "Sure."
Remington Steele starred Stephanie Zimbalist and Pierce Brosnan, was co-created by Michael Gleason, and ran on NBC (The National Broadcasting Company). “The series blended the genres of romantic comedy, drama, and detective procedural. Remington Steele's premise is that Laura Holt, a licensed private detective played by Stephanie Zimbalist, opened a detective agency under her own name, although found that potential clients refused to hire a woman, however qualified. To solve the problem, Laura invents a fictitious male superior whom she names Remington Steele. Through a series of events that unfold in the first episode, "License to Steele", Pierce Brosnan's character, a former thief and con man whose real name (or whether he even has one) is never revealed, assumes the identity of Remington Steele. Behind the scenes, Laura remains firmly in charge.”
Writers Jay Scherick and David Ronn are in charge of the reboot for NBC, while Rubem Fleischer was tapped for directing. Scherick and Ronn have (er) comedic experience with writing The Smurfs, while Fleischer directed Zombieland. As reboots go we can all hope Remington Steele will have as much success as Dallas.
