Former US procedural series Hart to Hart is in development for a reboot, with a gay couple as its central characters.
The series, which ran for 5 seasons from 1979-84, starred Robert Wagner and Stefanie Powers as a wealthy couple leading a glamorous jet-set lifestyle solving murders.
Deadline reports Christopher Fife (Revenge, Private Practice), is giving the series a modern makeover with a gay couple who must balance the crime-solving in the midst of newly-found domesticity. No word on the gender of the characters.
The project has received a script commitment from multiple networks, but yet to proceed to pilot stage.
I guess now it doesn’t need to justify its campy tone…
