Knight Rider Puts Vegas Boss Behind the Wheel

Gary Scott Thompson, who gave us Las Vegas but also (and more relevant to this particular situation) penned Fast and the Furious, has inked a new two-year deal with NBCU, as part of which he will get behind the wheel at Knight Rider. Serving as show-runner, Thompson will executive-produce alongside Doug Liman, David Bartis and Dave Andron (who penned the backdoor pilot). With action and effects being a major part of the rebooted series, it is hoped that Thompson and his Fast experience can ramp up the quality seen in the TV-movie. Now if he can just recruit Vanessa Marcil to give K.I.T.T. a soapy wash every week, I'm in! — MWM
