Here We Go Again

As hard as this may be to believe, ABC-TV has greenlighted a pilot film for a reboot of the 1974-1975 crime drama Get Christie Love!, which starred Teresa Graves as a (literally) kick-ass Los Angeles undercover cop. According to Deadline Hollywood, this not-quite-remake will star Canadian-American actress Kylie Bunbury.
The new Get Christie Love (no ! in the title), written by [executive producer Courtney] Kemp, is an action-packed, music-driven drama that centers on Christie Love (Bunbury), an African-American female CIA agent who leads an elite ops unit. She transforms into whomever she needs to be to get the job done, especially when it’s down to the wire and the stakes are life and death. The high-adrenaline missions of the series are anchored by an emotional mystery about Christie’s first love—unearthing the truth about this relationship will be the biggest mission impossible of her life.
Adding further to 2018’s reboot fever, In Reference to Murder blogger B.V. Lawson notes that “CBS also ordered pilots for the Magnum P.I. and Cagney & Lacey reboots. The original Tom Selleck Magnum series ran from 1980 to 1988, while Tyne Daly and Sharon Glass’ female-fronted police procedural was on the air from 1982 to 1988.”
