Heroes, Prison Break and Knight Rider will all be ‘fasttracked’ by Seven in October.
The new Knight Rider joins the list of shows that Seven previously indicated it would screen not long after their American debut.
Heroes launches on September 22 in the US, while Knight Rider has a series premiere of September 24. Seven already has the telemovie, with a cameo from David Hasselhoff, which screened in the US in February.
Prison Break is the slowest of the new ‘fasttrackers’, already having a 2hr season premiere in the US last week.
The biggest action series of the new US television season – Heroes, Prison Break and the reinvented Knight Rider – will be fast tracked to Seven next month just weeks after they premiere in the US.
The iconic 1980s television classic Knight Rider comes roaring back to life as a reinvented, super-charged series showcasing the new KITT (Knight Industries Three Thousand). Equipped with a supercomputer capable of hacking almost any system, a nanotechnology that allows it to change shape and color, and an artificial intelligence that makes it the ideal crime-fighting partner, KITT (voiced by Val Kilmer) is the coolest ride on the planet. Justin Bruening stars as Mike Tracer, son of Michael Knight, while David Hasselhoff is set for a cameo in the premiere movie-length episode.
Brace yourself for the exhilarating third season of Heroes, “Volume 3: Villains”. After a lacklustre second season, Heroes returns with the fast-paced, epic storytelling and comic flair that made it a phenomena in it’s first year. The back-to-form new season will explore the nature of good and evil in all the characters, as a cadre of villains is unleashed upon the world. And if you missed Season 2, don’t worry. Creator Tim Kring indicates the new season isn’t too dependent on knowing what happened last year. “We’re not doing much recap,” he told Entertainment Weekly last month. “That’s how confident we are that you can pick right up and start watching.”
In Prison Break’s nail-biting fourth season, Michael’s (Wentworth Miller) world is turned upside down when he discovers the woman he loved and thought he’d lost, Dr Sara Tancredi (Sarah Wayne Callies), is still alive. Realising the only way they will truly be free, Michael and Lincoln (Dominic Purcell) avow to find Sara and take down The Company by stealing their “black book”. They assemble a group of allies and familiar faces to accomplish their task, but soon find the only thing harder than breaking out will be breaking in.
