Did We Really Need This?

It seems my fervent wish that a “reimagining” of the 1985-1989 Edward Woodward crime drama, The Equalizer, never be shot has not been granted. According to In Reference to Murder,
Adam Goldberg has been tapped as a lead opposite Queen Latifah in The Equalizer reboot, which has a straight-to-series order at CBS to launch this season. A reimagining of the classic series, The Equalizer stars Queen Latifah as Robyn McCall, an enigmatic woman with a mysterious background who uses her extensive skills to help those with nowhere else to turn. Goldberg will play Harry Keshegian, an endearing, eccentric, and paranoid tech geek whose experience as a white-hat hacker lets him know what the real conspiracies are. He’s as loyal as they come and like a brother to McCall. The series, which recently started production, also stars Chris Noth, Lorraine Toussaint, Tory Kittles, Liza Lapira, and Laya DeLeon Hayes.
Production of the show was shut down in March, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but expectations are that it will premiere in early 2021.
