NBC Looks to Revive The Rockford Files

The Rockford Files

Variety is reporting that NBC is looking to revive the classic PI series The Rockford Files. The series ran for 6 seasons on NBC, from 1974 through 1980, and starred James Garner as Jim Rockford, an ex-con private investigator who made his home in a trailer parked in Malibu. A series of 8 made-for-television movies based on the series aired from 1994 through 1999. Garner won an Emmy for his performance in 1977, and the series won the following year for Outstanding Drama.

David Shore (House, Family Law) has been tapped for the remake. "It's one of the shows that made me want to become a writer," Shore said. "I had no interest in adapting any old stuff, but this was the one exception."

All 6 seasons of The Rockford Files are available on DVD from Mysteries on TV.
