http://www.deadline.com/2010/11/cbs-to-remake-the-wild-wild-west-series-with-writers-ron-moore-and-naren-shankar/ CBS is bringing the adventures of Secret Service Agents Jim West and Artemis Gordon back to the small screen. "Battlestar Galactica" developer/showrunner Ronald D. Moore and former "CSI" executive producer/co-showrunner Naren Shankar are writing and executive producing. Since this is Moore's third series this year, following Sci-Fi police procedural "17th Precinct" and coast guard adventure series "The McCulloch" for NBC, Shankar would presumably be showrunning should the pilot make it to series. If they boil it down to the essentials of two secret service agents going on missions for President Ulysses S. Grant in a steam-punk twist on the post-Civil War West, I think this could be terrific. Ditch the train, ditch the over reliance on gadgets. Put these guys on horseback, have them sleeping under the open sky between towns, mix in normal outlaws and thieves with the more fantastical villains, and it's a show I'd definitely want to watch.
