First Look: KNIGHT RIDER – Pictures

KNIGHT RIDER - Justin Bruening as Mike Tracer on NBC

The date gets closer and closer until we finally get to take a look at the new KNIGHT RIDER 2-hour TV movie.

For now take a look at the first pictures from Knight Rider. They look like they are from the beginning of the movie if I had to guess.

Check out the cameo from David Hasselhoff! I do wish we would see more of KITT, but soon enough.

The new Knight Rider TV movie stars Justin Bruening (“All My Children”), Deanna Russo (“The Young and the Restless”), Sydney Tamiia Poitier (“Veronica Mars,” “Grindhouse”) and Bruce Davison (“Breach,” “Close To Home”). In addition, David Hasselhoff – who starred in the original Knight Rider 1980’s TV show as Michael Knight – returns as the same character for a special guest-star appearance.

Knight Rider premieres February 17th at 9 pm on NBC.

Don’t forget to check out our interviews with the cast of the new Knight Rider movie here.

Synopsis: As the original story resumes, the new KITT (Knight Industries Three Thousand) is absolutely the coolest car ever created: its supercomputer capable of hacking almost any system; its weapons systems efficient; and its body — thanks to its creator’s work and nanotechnology — is capable of actually shifting shape and color. Plus, its artificial intelligence makes it the ideal good cop partner: logical, precise and possessing infinite knowledge. It is the ultimate car — and someone will be willing to do anything to obtain it.

Sarah Graimen (Russo) is a 24-year old Ph.D. candidate at Stanford University, following in her genius father Charles’ (Davison) footsteps. But when men attempt to abduct her, Sarah receives a mysterious call from KITT warning her that he’s a creation of Charles’, who also invented the first KITT 25 years ago — and that her father is in serious danger.

Sarah and KITT track down her best friend from childhood, Mike Tracer (Bruening), a 23-year-old ex-Army Ranger, whom Sarah hasn’t seen since he left home at 18. Having served in Iraq, Mike is now jaded and lost and initially resistant. Eventually he agrees to help Sarah and the two set out to find Charles and to discover who’s behind the attempt to procure KITT. Along the way, Carrie Rivai (Poitier), an agile yet tough FBI agent who has a long-standing friendship with Charles and Sarah, is brought into the mix to help in the search.
