FOX Plans A Female-Led “Kung Fu” Reboot

FOX is reportedly developing a female-led reboot of the iconic 1970s series “Kung Fu” with the project scoring a put pilot order.

The new take follows the adventures of Lucy Chang, a Buddhist monk and kung fu master who travels through 1950s America. Armed only with her spiritual training and her martial arts skills, she searches for the man who stole her child years before.

She soon teams with JT Cullen, a charming Korean War veteran with his own secrets and as she continues her search she also comes to the aid of people in need. Fox has given the project a put pilot order.

Wendy Mericle (“Arrow,” “Desperate Housewives,” “Smallville”) will write and executive produce with Greg Berlanti and Sarah Schechter also executive producing.
