Imagine you're a CBS executive. You've cloned CSI so many times that you've lost track. But when you try to put something else on the air -- vampire detectives, singing casino owners, grumpy nuclear-war survivors -- the viewers revolt. What to do, what to do, what to do. But wait -- here's a thought! Dig up the corpse of a cop show from the 1970s and reanimate it! And so we have a new Streets Of San Francisco shuffling in from the graveyard, a zombie refugee from the 1970s. No kidding: The network has screenwriters Sheldon Turner (the 2005 version of The Longest Yard) and Robert Port (several episode of CBS cop drama Numb3rs) working on the script of a pilot episode. If it works, you know a new Miami Vice can't be far behind.
A new 'Streets Of San Francisco'?
