“And when they met, it was moyder…”
Deadline reports that NBC has decided to remake Hart to Hart — the ABC TV series that starred Robert Wagner and Stefanie Powers (1979-1984) as a wealthy, jet-setting couple who solved mysteries — with a gay couple at its, er, heart.
NBC describes its Hart as a “modern and sexy retelling” of the original, starring “by-the-book” attorney Jonathan Hart and “free-spirited investigator” Dan Hartman. The dynamic duo “must balance the two sides of their life: action-packed crime-solving in the midst of newly found domesticity.”
And since the couple will struggle to balance their love of crime-solving with their love of one another, we’re hoping it stars Matt Bomer opposite … well we don’t know quite who would be his equal paramour. Or maybe Dan Bucatinsky could vie for the role and have a young male ingenue as his sidekick. Please, at least one of these actors needs to be openly gay. The sexy script will demand it!
