Because the apex of creativity occurred sometime in the mid-1980’s, NBC (of course it’s NBC) is getting in the ole’ wayback machine to reboot the vaguely memorable show Remington Steele in half-hour comedy form. Because everyone familiar with the original is either dead or dying, allow me to synopsize: A woman, played by Stephanie Zimbalist, opened a detective agency, but found no one wanted to hire a woman PI. So she hired Pierce Brosnan‘s con man as her acting boss.
HILARIOUS AND FUN.
Anyway, the reboot will revolve around the couple’s daughter, who reopens the agency. The series will be produced by Zombieland and Gangster Squad‘s Ruben Fleischer, which is pretty weird as well.
