WillI ABC continue to develop a live-action TV series reboot of "The Greatest American Hero" (1981) starring Hannah Simone ("New Girl") as an 'empowered' woman, who is given an alien powered supersuit, or will they opt for a 'woke' interpretation of the main character ?
"...'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.
