CBS Planning ‘The Wild Wild West’ Reboot


CBS is attempting to revive the 1960s series The Wild Wild West.

Both Battlestar Galactica developer/executive producer Ron Moore and CSI executive producer Naren Shankar have been asked by the network to write and executive-produce the remake. The duo previously worked together on Star Trek: The Next Generation and Star Trek: Deep Space Nine.

The original CBS action-adventure Western, which aired from 1965-1969, followed Secret Service Agents James West and Artmeus Gordon as they traveled around on their luxury train, the Wanderer, investigating crimes in post-Civil War America. Robert Conrad originated the role of West and Ross Martin played Gordon. A film adaptation starring Will Smith and Kevin Kline underwhelmed at the box office in 1999.

CBS recently did this very same thing with oldie-but-now-new hit show Hawaii Five-0, which was recently picked up for a full season. But can the network pull it off with something so…western? Weigh in!
