CW Reboots 80’s “Beauty and the Beast”

The CW and CBS Television Studios are developing a contemporary reboot of the late 80’s drama fantasy series “Beauty and the Beast” reports The Live Feed.

The new version, to air on The CW, is described as a “modern-day romantic love story with a procedural twist”. The original show followed the relationship between Vincent (Ron Perlman), a mythic noble man-beast, and NYC assistant district attorney Catherine (Linda Hamilton). The show ran for three seasons.

“Brothers and Sisters” duo producer Jennifer Levin and Sherri Cooper are attached to pen the project and executive produce alongside Paul Witt, C. Anthony Thomas, Ron Koslow and Bill Haber.

This is NOT to be confused with the other ‘Beauty’ project announced last week in development at ABC which is described as “an epic fantasy reimagining of the public domain fairy tale”.
