House Kills The Rockford Files Reboot!

| Filed under: TV News


Well, that's the end of that!

The proposed NBC reboot of the '70s crime drama The Rockford Files has been suddenly shelved, and for everyone out there super disappointed, you have House to blame!

Why, you ask?

Writer David Shore had been set to develop the remake, but was called back to the Hugh Laurie medical drama - which he created - when a proposed storyline on the series, planned to take up a significant portion of the season, was scrapped in the advanced stages, and executive producers asked for his help to re-break a new arc!

He's since shelved Rockford, although there is still the option to try and get it off the ground again next year.

We've been hearing rumblings about this proposed remake for years, and things have never seemed to come to fruition, so maybe this is a sign to just leave the original series as is!

Not EVERYTHING needs to be re-made!

Besides, if the want mystery, we say reboot Murder, She Wrote! That shiz is where it's at!


Thoughts?? You disappointed to see The Rockford Files fall to the wayside??

    Reboot Murder She Wrote? Don't think so. All of Jessica Fletcher's friends and relatives are either dead or in prison.

    it's a blessing really. rockford files, barretta, barney miller, waltons - those old 70s shows won't work for today's viewers. i think it would be best to come up with some new shows which means the netwoks will have to talk to some new blood and stop trying to work Chandler and Joey into every fucking new show.

    I usually read and do not comment but I find I need too! It would be great to get better writers with better scripts then to keep "remaking" the world it seems. Please don't fix it if it not broke!

    Ugh, leave it alone! It's a classic and should stay that way. Doesn't anyone in Hollywood have an original thought anymore???

    Not everything needs to be remade? What about your post about making the movie "Far From Heaven" into a Broadway production?

    Some things are just best left alone and enjoyed in their original form.

    It is not a good idea to remake shows that were very successful. It is an insult to the original stars. Instead watch the old shows; do not remake them. They already ruined Hawaii Five-O.
