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.
