‘The Greatest American Hero’ Reboot Will Have an Indian-American as Its Lead

Okay, I’m down with this reboot (what took it so long?)
The “original” series ended up with Ralph passing the suit on to a young woman. Sadly that premise didn’t (uhhhh) take off well and like flying, without an instruction manual, crashed miserably.
I’ve wanted this, I’ve needed this.
Long live the 80’s!!

The Greatest American Hero is making its way back to our televisions, but not as people remember as ABC has approved a female-led reboot of the famous ‘80s series, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The show, a single-camera, half-hour comedy, will follow the story of Meera, a 30-year-old Indian-American woman whose talents include drinking tequila, signing her heart out in karaoke and… not much else, until some aliens give her a super suit to protect the planet.

The original The Greatest American Hero, who debut on ABC in 1981 and ran for three seasons, was an hour-long comedy-drama show with a white male actor (William Katt) in the lead role.

My blog, My way Welcome to a little piece of my life. Here you will find things concerning my everyday experiences and or my thoughts on everyday happenings. For instance you may find thoughts of my Farmstead, which is as my wife calls it, our Accidental Farming life. Perhaps on a whim, I might just jump on a soap box about what's going on with my crazy family (the immediate one, that is).~You don't need to put a penny in the coin slot for any commentary there~ You may find, new additions to what I call "Hobby-time". Ahh yes, my hobby... I make pinback buttons (some call them badges). Sorry for the shameful plug ;-) *** And then there is the outside the box or "Offtrack" thinking, part of me. Which can be anything else from aliens to the zoology of the Loch Ness monster, but will probably be more mundane as health concerns, for instance, to vaccinate or not. Is the Earth Flat or is it Hollow? Is there a dome? Is any of it real? Do you really want to know? Police brutality and the continuing corruption of established government, Big Business, Big Oil, Big Brother. Can we survive? Should we survive? The coming montrary collapse. There is so much going on, more then we see outside our windows.
