NBC does not like us, orders remake of THE ROCKFORD FILES.

I may be jumping the gun, but NBC appears to be brain dead.

Today, THR announced that NBC has greenlit six new series, including a remake of THE ROCKFORD FILES.

Somebody stop them.

For any young whippersnappers out there, James Garner ROCKED as Jim Rockford, an ex-con P.I. The series ran from 1974 to 1980 and was one of the best P.I. series ever. I simply can’t fathom anyone other than Garner playing Rockford. For God’s sake, these clowns killed off SOUTHLAND and opted to rework an all-time classic?

Other series ordered include a U.S. version of PRIME SUSPECT. This is good because we have not f**ked up enough British shows already. We will also get another quirky legal drama from David Kelly entitled KINDRED.
