Legendary TV is developing a TV reboot for the classic sci-fi show Lost in Space.
Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless (Dracula Untold) are writing the show.
The original series premiered in 1965 and ran for three seasons (83 episodes). The show followed the Robinson family, Major Don West, Doctor Zachary Smith, and their robot, B9. The Robin family was launched into space for mankind’s first attempt to colonize the stars, but their ship is promptly thrown off course because of a stowaway.
The series was rebooted before as a big budget live-action movie in 1998. TV reboots were attempted with pilots in the 1970s and 2003 that were never picked up.
Sazama and Sharpless are attached to executive produce the project alongside Synthesis Entertainment’s Kevin Burns. Synthesis holds the rights to the original series.
