NEW "Knight Rider" Movie Premieres Sunday
NBC's iconic 1980s television classic "Knight Rider" returns Sunday night at 9/8c for one night only. Justin Bruening stars; David Hasselhoff makes a special guest appearance; and Val Kilmer provides the voice for a re-engineered and retooled KITT.
Hasselhoff starred in the original series as Michael Knight from 1982 to 1986. He will return as the same character in this movie.
Daytime star ("All My Children") and former fashion model Bruening previously appeared on "Cold Case" and "CSI: Miami." He stars as the estranged son of Michael Knight, Mike Traceur.
The movie is a backdoor pilot, which means NBC may opt to turn it into a weekly series next season if it does well in the ratings.
The new customized KITT (Knight Industries Three Thousand) Ford Mustang will be presented as the coolest car ever created, capable of actually shifting shape and color.
During the telecast NBC and Ford will give viewers the chance to win one of four new high-tech Ford automobiles, including the grand prize - a 2008 Ford Shelby GT 500 KR worth $79,995.
