Netflix in Talks to Revive ‘Lost in Space’

The Original Series Aired on CBS from 1965-68

“Lost in Space” is the latest classic television series in the works to be revived. The original series, which was created by Irwin Allen and aired on CBS from 1965 to 1968, could be heading to Netflix. The proposed new version hails from Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless, who will also serve as executive producers, along with Kevin Burns of Synthesis Entertainment, and Neil Marshall and Marc Helwig of Applebox. Marshall is expected to direct.

“Lost in Space,” of course, follows the Robinson family as they’re sent off on a quest into deep space and are sabotaged by Dr. Zachary Smith. It was most recently remade as a feature film in 1998 starring William Hurt, Matt LeBlanc, and Heather Graham. And there was a pilot devleoped in 2003 for a revival, which never went to series.
