David Hasselhoff - Knight Rider

Knight Rider is coming back! It's still too early to tell where or with who, though. The only thing that's confirmed is Producer-director Justin Lin is on board for this digital reboot of the show which starred David Hasselhoff. The show will potentially launch sometime in 2017 with digital network Machinima - which has partnered with Lin and NBCUniversal Brand Development. 

Lin is best known for Star Trek Beyond and the Fast & Furious films along with his YOMYOMF production shingle. They will produce the new digital series. 

“‘Knight Rider’ is an iconic franchise whose concepts of AI and autonomous vehicles were science-fiction in the 1980s and are now science fact,” said Machinima CEO Chad Gutstein. “Justin is one of the leading storytellers of his generation and we couldn’t be more excited to work with him on reinvigorating ‘Knight Rider’ for a new generation of fans.”
