Knight Rider marathon David Hasselhoff El Rey Network

Before he became a global sensation as a singer and as the star of TV’s Baywatch, David Hasselhoff headlined the NBC television series Knight Rider as the high-tech crimefighter Michael Knight. Created and produced by Glen A. Larson (Battlestar Galactica, Magnum, P.I.), the show ran from 1982 to 1986 and famously featured Knight’s talking car, KITT, modeled after the Pontiac Trans Am.

Now, the El Rey Network will air a 10-hour marathon of the series on Hasselhoff’s birthday, Sunday, July 17th from 10AM ET to 8PM ET/PT, hosted by The Hoff himself.

Check out the promo video for the event here below.

In Memoriam: Film and TV Entertainers

As 2014 comes to a close, we take a moment at Geeks Of Doom to remember all the fallen entertainment figures in film and television who left us this year. This year, we gave a farewell to a large array of heavyweights, cult heroes, pioneering figures, and sentimental favorites who were among those who have passed on in a physical sense, but leaving the memories, the ones that they made in the past and the ones each of their fans have in regards to them.

Famed TV Producer Glen A. Larson (Battlestar Galactica, Knight Rider) Dies

Glen A. Larson

Glen A. Larson, who produced some of the biggest and highly remembered TV programs of the 1970s and 1980s, including Knight Rider, Magnum P.I., and the original version of Battlestar Galactica among them, died on Friday at the UCLA Medical Center. He was 77. Larson’s son James had reported that his father had suffered from esophageal cancer.

Larson in many senses was like a Norman Lear of his genre, and like Lear at his peak, had several shows running at once on the air. However, unlike Lear, Larson’s programs weren’t critically lauded for the most part, and Emmy awards were non-existent. But what the programs did supply was a kind of wide-eyed fantasy skein which ran as a common thread through most of them. A large and loyal fanbase, mainly young teenage boys, watched and devoured these programs week after week and snatching up all forms of these shows via marketing, whether it be a BSG‘s Cylon Space Craft toy or a replica of a K.I.T.T. car from Knight Rider. It was this rabid cult fanbase that kept these shows flourishing and remaining in the subconscious.

Bryan Singer To Make Another Run At ‘Battlestar Galactica’

Cylon Concept

UPDATE: This news is being confirmed by Entertainment Weekly, who also confirm that Singer will in fact be directing as well as producing.

HitFix has the exclusive scoop that Universal is reaching out to Bryan Singer to develop and produce a new feature film based on Battlestar Galactica. There’s also the chance that Singer could direct the new film, under the right circumstances.

If you’re not aware, Singer was actually the one developing Galactica for Sci Fi back in 2001, even having concept work completed on the project (Image at right is a Cylon concept, click to go big). Then the September 11 attacks occurred, and given the nature of the show — particularly how it begins — everything was delayed, and eventually everyone moved on to other things until Ronald D. Moore and David Eick were brought in for another go of it.

As you’ll recall, it was announced a while back that Universal was developing a new movie based on the original 1978 TV show, with original show creator Glen A. Larson writing and producing the film. It seems pretty obvious that they aren’t making two separate movies here, so this must be the project that they’re bringing Bryan Singer in for. Kind of like everything coming around full-circle — quite fitting, if it does all work out.
