Sony TV and producer Carol Mendelsohn are developing a contemporary remake of classic series “Hart to Hart” but to center it around a gay couple.
Sidney Sheldon’s original show ran from 1979-1984 and eight further telefilms were produced in the 1990s. The story followed a wealthy couple (Robert Wagner and Stefanie Powers) who often acted as amateur detectives.
The new version is described as a modern and sexy retelling which teams attorney Jonathan Hart and free-spirited investigator Dan Hartman who balance action-packed crime-solving with newly found domesticity.
Christopher Fife will pen the project which Mendelsohn and Julie Weitz will executive produce. The show already has a script commitment plus penalty at NBC.
