Fox Eyes ‘Kung Fu’ Reboot

Proposed New Series Will Be the Second Revival of the Classic 1970s Drama

Fox has given a pilot commitment to “Kung Fu,” which if it moves forward will be the second revival of the classic 1970s drama starring David Carradine. The first revival, “Kung Fu: The Legend Continues,” was telecast in first-run syndication from 1993 to 1997. This proposed version, set in present day, focuses on a young Chinese-American woman who inherits her father’s kung fu studio, only to discover it’s actually a secret center dedicated to helping members of the Chinatown community who have nowhere else to turn. With the help of a former star pupil — a smart and driven ex-Marine — she vows to continue the school’s mission. In the process, she discovers things she never knew about her cultural background and family’s heritage, including a connection to a legendary ancestor.

This new version of “Kung Fu” comes from former “Sleepy Hollow” executive producer Albert Kim, Greg Berlanti’s Berlanti Prods. and Warner Bros. TV.
