Bruce Davison has joined the cast of the upcoming Knight Rider telefilm. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Wayne Kasserman and Greg Ellis have also come aboard this reimagining of the popular series from 1982.
This sequel to the original show will center on the son that Michael Knight never knew he had. The young Knight is recruited to join the Knight Foundation, a group committed to counteracting and preventing the damage done by private, covert military contractors.
Both KITT and David Hasselhoff will be appearing in the two-hour pilot, which, if successful, will be turned into a weekly series for NBC.
