And you thought only movie studios were out of fresh ideas …
The upcoming TV season – and beyond – will feature plenty of shows that sound awfully familiar. Expect reboots of old TV favorites like “The Munsters,” “The Flintstones,” “Bewitched” and “The Rifleman.”
“Source Code,” the smart 2011 sci-fi thriller, will be hitting the small screen, and “Hannibal” brings back everyone’s favorite flesh eater for a few more chills – and Chianti. “Romancing the Stone” will try to replicate the sexual chemistry between Michael Douglas and Kathleen Turner from the 1984 film.
The cable networks have been delivering fresh, well-written fare for years like “Breaking Bad,” “The Sopranos,” “The Walking Dead” and “Mad Men.” The networks seem content to rehash old material hoping young eyes won’t know the difference.
