Greatest American Hero Set for Remake

American TV channel ABC has put a pilot commitment in for a half-hour single-camera reboot of a classic 80's TV show we all remember “The Greatest American Hero”.

The new show will be a modern retelling of the story with some massive changes expected, the main one being the hero won’t be a curly haired blond white male named Ralph (played by William Katt in the original). Instead now the rumor is that it will be a Cleveland-born 30-year-old Indian-American woman named Meera. The rest of the story remains the same with aliens entrusting the person with a super powered suit, remember all those awkward take offs and landings when he tried to fly?

Let's hope they bring back the original theme song, press play on this and try not to sing along.. I dare you.
