Who's in it and where youve seen them: The new Michael Knight character, Mike Traceur, is played by soap vet ("All My Children") Justin Bruening. Deanna Russo (another soap actress - "Young and the Restless") and Sydney Tamiia Poitier ("Grindhouse," dad's an acting icon) also star. The Hof himself, David Hasselhoff aka Michael Knight, will also appear and the voice of K.I.T.T. is none other than Val 'I'm your huckleberry' Kilmer.
Whos behind it: Glen Larson was a writer on the original show and has penned a recent "Battlestar Galactica" script as well. Steven Shill, who directed the backdoor pilot, has recently guided episodes of "Dexter" and "The Tudors."
Why youll watch: Because you may remember the theme: "Knight Rider, a shadowy flight into the dangerous world of a man who does not exist." So cool. If not, it has a retooled version of one of television's most well-known cars, with gadgets rivaling James Bond's.
