The Rockford Files Remake Shelved at NBC

The Rockford Files (NBC)

Good news for fans of The Rockford Files: Deadline|Hollywood is reporting that the project to remake the series has been shelved ... at least for the time being (i.e. the current development season).

Last January, we reported that NBC was interested in reviving the 1970s series that starred James Garner as Los Angeles private investigator Jim Rockford. And in April, it appeared as if the series update was a go, moving forward to the pilot stage. But when NBC announced its Fall 2010 schedule in May, The Rockford Files was conspicuously absent.

With the success of the reboot of Hawaii Five-0 at CBS, it seemed a sure thing that NBC would reconsider its decision at some point regarding The Rockford Files. David Shore, the creative force behind the remake, however, has been unable to devote much attention to it, and thus it has now been back-burnered. We can only hope it stays that way.
