What’s going to be Ben Silverman’s first slip up? You won’t have to go any farther than the revival of American Gladiators. I was too old to like the original when I was 14 (I was three years late for their target age). I don’t think a new 2007 version will do much for me or any other arrested adults out there. Remaking the "Bionic Woman" is one thing, especially after the success of "Heroes," this is just stupid. From the Exec behind it, Craig Plestis, exec VP of alternative programming, development and specials:
"It's truly what's not in the TV landscape right now. While everyone's zigging, I'm attracted to doing a zag."
That’s truly Zucker thinking right there. We should keep an eye on this guy, he will be shooting to the top.
