Mark Burnett is bringing an early TV classic back to the airwaves. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Burnett is producing a remake of the hit series This Is Your Life.
Burnett is producing with Ralph Edwards Productions, which owns the rights to the series that aired from 1952 to 1961. There was a brief revival of the show in 1972 and, more recently, ABC had been set to air a revival in 2005 with Regis Philbin as the host, but the project never got off the ground.
"This Is Your Life is one of the most enduring programs to air on television, and we are thrilled to be bringing it back with the top producer of unscripted entertainment," said Barbara Dunn-Leonard, president of Ralph Edwards Prods.
No production schedule for the new series was announced.
