Richard L. Bare and Phillip B. Goldfine have acquired the remake rights to the classic 1960s TV series "Green Acres" and plan to develop the property into both a feature film and a Broadway play.

Eddie Albert and Eva Gabor starred in the original as a married New York couple who try their hand at farming in the Midwestern community of Hooterville. It also sported a catchy theme tune.

The project is currently seeking a writer and director for the feature adaptation. Bare, who directed 166 of the show's 170 episodes, has been trying to revive the hit series for almost a decade.

All six seasons of "Green Acres" are currently available on Hulu.
