Seems NBC is cleaning out the closet again. Word on the street (at least according to Variety) is that NBC has commissioned a script from FOX Television for a two-hour TV movie as a pilot for a new series. It will be extensively updated, with references to the 60s show. No word on whether it will have anything to do with the 1998 feature movie, which didn’t do well enough at the box office to revive the franchise.
Will there be more Qunatum Leap? Executive producer Donald Bellisario says it isn’t likely. In an interview on TV Guide Online, he says that Universal, who owns all the rights, ” has never shown an interest.” Too bad – Scott Bakula playing a different character each week made for some of the best acting on TV.
