Apparently the rumors were true (although when I asked him last month, he couldn’t say anything.) Ronald D. Moore and Naren Shankar (former exec for CSI) are writing/exec. producing The Wild Wild West for CBS (after a deal is worked out with Sony, who Moore has a development deal with).
It appears that CBS thinks pairing SF writers with CSI producers is a winning combo, given the success of their reboot of Hawaii Five-0.
Michael Ausiello is reporting that Ron Moore’s next target for a remake may be the 1965 SF-tinged western series The Wild Wild West, which started Robert Conrad and Ross Martin as Secret Service agents James West and Artemis Gordon who worked out in the “wild” west and had cool Bond-like gadgets. If I get the chance next week, I’ll try and see if I can get confirmation from Moore and tweet it as soon as I can.
