Jonathan and Jennifer Hart were the wealthy, glamorous detective couple we watched for five seasons of Hart to Hart on Channel Nine in the 80s – wasn’t it great fun?

Sidney Sheldon’s pseudo mystery romance is a classic, but as we all know, some people believe they must remake them. And we’re sure the latest news about the Hart to Hart reboot will really turn some heads, even for non-fans of the original.

American production company NBC is developing a ‘a modern and sexy retelling’ of Hart to Hart… except with a gay couple as the wealthy married detectives.

According to Deadline, the reboot will centre around by-the-book attorney Jonathan Hart and free-spirited investigator Dan Hartman who solve crimes in the midst of newly found domesticity.

Christopher Fife, who wrote hit shows Revenge and Private Practice, is set to write the script for the show that ran for five seasons from 1979-1984.

Millions of fans around the world watched the original series starring Robert Wagner and Stefanie Powers, which earned its two stars nine Golden Globe nominations between them, and a win for supporting actor Lionel Stander, who played the couple’s butler and chauffeur.

EW reunited the original Hart to Hart duo in 2013, with the video below.

  1. I noticed that cellulite my friend was fading, I asked her what she was doing and she said she was using the method of this site ROG5 .COM

  2. Some things just don’t remake well. Will probably attract a new audience but maybe not fans of the original who just associate certain faces with certain roles. It would be like a remake of MASH with someone else playing Alan Alda’s role!

    • Oh Sue don’t say it someone might be listening. A remake of MASH – they couldn’t, they wouldn’t. Wait if money is involved they probably will. Agree not keen on remakes.

  3. I will definitely not watch it. I am sick of gay relationships being shoved down my throat.

  4. You couldn’t follow in the footsteps of the previous cast, it was a great show, would not watch the new show, just wouldn’t be the same!
