Vincent and Catherine return! Beauty & the Beast rebooted!

Vincent and Catherine return! Beauty & the Beast rebooted!
Clint

Ah, remember “Beauty & the Beast”? What a gem that was. Essential viewing back in the day. I can picture the opening credits in my head as I type…

This is where the wealthy and the powerful rule. It is her world, a world apart from mine. Her name is Catherine. From the moment I saw her, she captured my heart with her beauty, her warmth, and her courage. I knew then, as I know now, she would change my life forever.

Seriously, how sweet was this show!? Linda Hamilton and Ron Perlman made the most unlikely of sizzling screen couples – but that, of course, was the point. She was the cute, he was the scary. And it was just… magic. For a show like this, a prime-time free-to-air offering in the early ’80s to be even considered… magic… meant something. I must try get this out on DVD and watch it top to bottom.

… Or do I just wait for the reboot?

TVLine says The CW are rebooting “Beauty and the Beast”. CBS Studios produces for the CW.

The new version will not only modernize and CW-up the love story but also add a procedural twist. Nice pedigree, too: Without a Trace vet Jennifer Levin and Brothers & Sisters‘ Sherri Cooper will pen the script and serve as executive producers.

I’m told this was the first project new CW president Mark Pedowitz discussed with CBS Studios head David Stapf when he succeeded Dawn Ostroff in the spring. Side note: This B&B is not to be confused with the B&B pilot that ABC is developing for next season. That one is based on the public domain fairy tale about a girl forced to live in a castle with a beast who eventually wins her heart.

Here’s hoping they throw Hamilton and Perlman a bone; not that they need one.
