The Series

On the heels of NBC's hit movie, "Knight Rider," the iconic 1980s television classic comes roaring back to life as a reinvented, updated and super-charged action series showcasing the new KITT (Knight Industries Three Thousand). Absolutely the coolest car ever created, KITT is equipped with an "AI" (artificial intelligence) that is capable of hacking almost any system. Its weapons systems match that of a jet fighter, and its body is capable of actually transforming into other vehicles and using sophisticated holographic imagery to elude villains.

"Knight Rider" stars Justin Bruening ("Cold Case," "All My Children"), Deanna Russo ("NCIS," "The Young and the Restless"), Sydney Tamiia Poitier ("Veronica Mars," "Grindhouse") and Bruce Davison ("Breach," "Close To Home").

David Bartis ("Heist," "The O.C."), Doug Liman ("Mr. and Mrs. Smith," "The Bourne Identity") and Gary Scott Thompson ("Las Vegas," "The Fast and The Furious") are executive producers. Based on characters created by Glen Larson, "Knight Rider" is from Universal Media Studios and Dutch Oven Productions.

The Movie

In the movie "Knight Rider," Sarah Graimen (Russo) is a 24-year old Ph.D. candidate at Stanford University, following in her genius father Charles' (Davison) footsteps. But when men attempt to abduct her, Sarah receives a mysterious call from KITT warning her that he's a creation of Charles', who also invented the first KITT 25 years ago—and that her father is in serious danger.

Sarah and KITT track down her best friend from childhood, Mike Tracer (Bruening), a 23-year-old ex-Army Ranger, whom Sarah hasn't seen since he left home at 18. Having served in Iraq, Mike is now jaded and lost and initially resistant. Eventually he agrees to help Sarah and the two set out to find Charles and to discover who's behind the attempt to procure KITT. Along the way on "Knight Rider," Carrie Rivai (Poitier), an agile yet tough FBI agent who has a long-standing friendship with Charles and Sarah, is brought into the mix to help in the search.

David Hasselhoff (NBC's "America's Got Talent")—who starred in the popular lead role as Michael Knight for four seasons during the original run of "Knight Rider"—returns as the same character during a special guest-star appearance.
