"The Greatest American Heroine"

Thanks to a recently greenlit TV pilot, ABC is deciding whether or not to reboot "The Greatest American Hero" as an episodic TV series, starring actress Hannah Simone ("New Girl") as an 'empowered' woman, given an alien powere bsuit : 

"...'Meera' loves tequila and karaoke, spending her life searching and failing to find meaning...

"...much to the chagrin of her family, until she becomes entrusted with a super suit to protect the planet..."

"The Greatest American Hero" aired for three seasons (1981-1983) on ABC, created by writer/producer Stephen J. Cannell, starring William Katt ("Carrie") as teacher 'Ralph Hinkley', Robert Culp ("I, Spy") as FBI agent 'Bill Maxwell' and Connie Sellecca ("The Wild Stallion") as lawyer 'Pam Davidson'.'

The series chronicled the adventures of 'Ralph' after a gaggle of aliens give him a red and black suit that grants him superhuman abilities. 

Unfortunately for Ralph, who hates wearing the suit, he has to learn how to use his powers through trial and error.
