First Glimpse: The New Knight Rider


OK, so this little teaser NBC just released of its two-hour Knight Rider movie is only 15 seconds long. It also doesn't reveal anything about the plot of the movie, which is set to air Feb. 17. But it does have a couple of things going for it: It offers a glimpse of the new, shiny, Ford Mustang version of KITT (also pictured at right), and it introduces Will Arnett as the car's slightly sinister voice.

When we we first heard about the plans to revive Knight Rider, there wasn't a whole lot of excitement around here — but I'm wondering if anyone out there has started to think it's a good idea. NBC is only committing to the TV movie, which centers on a character named Mike Traceur (soap star Justin Bruening), supposedly the son of David Hasselhoff's Michael Knight. But the rumor remains that the new Knight Rider could become a series if the movie gets good ratings. And really, what with the writers' strike, it's got to be better than reruns. Plus, Gob Bluth as the snarky car must count for something, right?

To check out the teaser and let me know what you think, just read more.
