like HEROINE to me?!.....they have cast the female lead for the 'Greatest American Hero/Heroine' reboot....

......Hannah Simone.....from 'New Girl' which is ending....this is just for the pilot.....


New Girl's Hannah Simone to Star in ABC's Greatest American Hero Reboot

....We’re betting Hannah Simone will look pretty great in tights and a cape.

The New Girl star has landed — or flown away with? — the lead role in ABC’s upcoming reboot of The Greatest American Hero, our sister site Deadline is reporting. Simone will play Meera, an Indian-American woman with a fondness for tequila and karaoke whose life is turned upside down when she’s entrusted with a superhero suit that grants superhuman powers to whoever wears it. (It doesn’t grant you any knowledge of how to use those powers, however.)

ABC’s new-look Greatest American Hero, which scored a pilot order last month, is a gender-flipped take on the original 1981-83 series, which starred William Katt as hapless superhero Ralph Hinkley. (You remember the classic “Believe It or Not” theme song, right?) Hero is just one of the many reboots and revivals in the works for next season, including new versions of Magnum P.I., Charmed and Murphy Brown.

This looks like perfect timing for Simone: Her role as fashion model Cece on the Fox sitcom New Girl will end this spring when the show wraps up its seven-season run. Simone also hosted the short-lived Fox reality competition Kicking & Screaming.



just a pilot.....it may not get pickup to series......?!

Hannah Simone had a shower scene with Megan Fox in New Girl.

It's FOX prime time, so mostly safe for work (not much to see, mostly dialog).

Having recently rewatched that show...

I enjoyed it as a kid, but nostalgia can't carry it. It's awful. Play this show in Guantanamo and you're gonna have the Geneva inspectors calling you up for war crimes.

The theme song was perfect. Connie Sellecca was good (and way under-used). The original idea was sound. The writing/acting/direction/FX were brain-meltingly awful.

I'd like to see it done with talented informed writers, a passionate director, a budget and a studio invested in a good outcome... And it better have an awesome theme song.

I haven't rewatched - but if memory serves, it was pretty bad back then. It was a filler for something to watch before what you REALLY wanted to watch came on.

And adjust the antennae next time you get up smiling smiley

IIRC, Dynasty followed TGAH. Is THAT what you really wanted to watch?

EDIT: My bad. Dynasty didn't come on until 10 PM (which makes sense); The Fall Guy came on at 9 PM.
