Following a tease of a ‘big announcement’ on social media Monday, “Moonlighting” creator Glenn Gordon Caron has today revealed what he meant in that cryptic tweet.
First up, there are no plans for a reboot of the famed 1980s drama starring Bruce Willis and Cybill Shepherd. Rather he says work ‘has begun’ on getting the rights sorted out to bring the original series back via a digital platform. He says:
“The business of getting all five seasons of “Moonlighting” starring Bruce Willis and Cybill Shepherd ready for streaming has begun. It’s an ambitious project, lots of moving parts. And it could take a while. [But] I wanted you to be the first to know. No word yet on where or when you’ll be seeing it – but it’s happening!”
The series revolved around cases investigated by the Blue Moon Detective Agency and its two partners, Madolyn “Maddie” Hayes (Shepherd) and David Addison Jr. (Willis). Considered one of TV’s first successful dramedies, the show blended mystery, sharp dialogue, and sexual tension.
