The action-comedy series by Steven J. Cannell aired from 1981 – 1983 starring William Katt and Robert Culp and spawned the hit single “Believe It or Not.”
Deadline reports FOX has ordered a pilot which will chronicle inner-city teacher Isaac’s adventures after his discovery of a superhero suit that gives him superhuman abilities. Unfortunately for Isaac, he hates wearing the suit and has to learn how to use its powers by trial and error because he quickly misplaces the suit’s instructions. He also has to deal with a government handler who has very different objectives than him and struggles as to whether he should use his newfound gifts to help others or just himself.
Phil Lord and Chris Miller, directors of the 22 Jump Street feature film (Cannell created 21 Jump Street) will executive produce with Cannell’s daughter, Tawnia McKiernan (Devious Maids, Grimm, The Mentalist), to direct.
Lord and Miller are also behind The Lego Movie.
Doesn’t matter how good this is, it will never improve on the theme song.
