The telemovie remake of Knight Rider will air this month on Seven before it unleashes the series in October.
Seven has slated the film in the surprising time of 9pm Saturday September 27. For what is effectively a springboard to the subsequent series, it is an interesting choice.
Although the film is rated M the timeslot could be a late start for kids. The film will follow the family movie Cars at 6:30pm. Being a Saturday night, young adults are likely to already be enjoying their weekend too, especially those who have been enjoying the AFL Grand Final. At least that’s a good chance to promo the evening schedule.
The telemovie aired in the US in February to mixed reviews, but it was enough to ignite a full series. It stars Justin Bruening, Deanna Russo and Bruce Davison. Val Kilmer was a late change as the voice of the new-look KITT. ‘The Hoff’ has a cameo.
Seven will fasttrack the series in October, after it premieres in the US on September 24th.
