CBS To Reboot “The Wild Wild West”

CBS is planning a new small screen remake of classic 60’s western TV series “The Wild Wild West” reports Deadline.

Set after the Civil War, the series followed two Secret Service agents – lawman James West and inventor Artemis Gordon – who traveled by train and took on missions to protect the President and investigate federal crimes.

“Battlestar Galactica” creator Ronald D. Moore and former “CSI” showrunner Naren Shankar will write and executive produce the pilot. The property was previously adapted into the Will Smith and Kevin Kline movie “Wild Wild West” back in 1999, a film that often still registers high on many ‘worst films ever made’ lists.
