THE WILD WILD WEST Added To Possible TV Reboot List
Published: October 5, 2010 - 4:50pm
With one successful reboot under his belt, rumor has it that Battlestar Galactica writer/producer Ron Moore is setting his sights on another popular franchise from back in the day titled The Wild Wild West.
We're not talking about the 1999 film starring Will Smith and Kevin Kline, we're talking about the true, classic western from the 60's.
The original Wild Wild West ran on CBS from 1965 to 1969 and starred Robert Conrad and Ross Martin as James T. West and Artemus Gordon. The two men were secret service agents for the government during the Old West and were equipped with a wide array of gizmos.
Right now it is in very early stages meaning it could be weeks or even months before Moore begins pitching the idea to any networks. Add this to the list of potential reboots of popular shows which now include Bryan Fuller's Munsters and David E. Kelley's Wonder Woman. Considering his success with the series Battlestar Galactica the odds are actually in his favor.
