The '60s-era drama "Ironside" is being remade at NBC.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, the network has ordered a pilot for a remake from writer/executive producer Michael Caleo.
“A tough, sexy but acerbic police detective relegated to a wheelchair after a shooting is hardly limited by his disability as he pushes and prods his hand-picked team to solve the most difficult cases in the city," NBC says in a description of the new "Ironside."
Blair Underwood is on board to star in the lead role Raymond Burr held from 1967 to 1975. David Semel, Teri Weinberg, John Davis and Jon Fox will also serve as producers on the hour-long drama.
