‘Magnum P.I.’: Zachary Knighton To Play Rick In CBS Reboot Pilot

Co-written by Lenkov and Eric Guggenheim and directed by Justin Lin, the reboot of the classic 1980s Tom Selleck series follows Thomas Magnum (Hernandez), a decorated ex-Navy SEAL who, upon returning home from Afghanistan, repurposes his military skills to become a private investigator. With help from fellow vets Theodore “TC” Calvin and Orville “Rick” Wright (Knighton), as well as that of disavowed former MI-6 agent Juliet Higgins (Weeks), Magnum takes on the cases no one else will, helping those who have no one else to turn to. – Nellie Andreeva, Deadline Hollywood http://ift.tt/2HDFwau

Netflix will stream the terrible-looking ‘ReBoot’ reboot

ReBoot: The Guardian Code starts off in live-action at a high school where a few teens get thrown together in a secret room, while elsewhere a hooded hacker stereotype plucked from a stock photo cackles gleefully in front of a slew of bargain-bin keyboards and computer parts. It quickly becomes clear that the show follows a sucked-into-the-video-game premise, looking much like a Disney channel series riffing on last fall’s rebooted Jumanji film. – David Lumb, Engadget http://engt.co/2opceof
