Last week, MTV began to air the twelfth season of their series Made, which gives participants the opportunity to have their dreams become real. In the premier episode we meet Chris, who is introduced to become David's new assistant. This episode features heavily David's 60th Birthday party where he was presented with his own KITT (with custom lambo doors) which was restored by Jen Catano.

Be sure to check out some behind the scenes pics from Jennifer on our forum! Or head over to davidNET where they have more footage from the episode.


The lovely Rebecca Holden, who played April Curtis in the second season of Knight Rider, is out with a new single! This time it's a duet with Grammy award winner Jon Secada.

Knight Rider Historian Joe Huth is out with another great book that takes a look at the original series of Knight Rider from a fresh perspective. In Knight Rider: 30 Years of a Lone Crusader and His Talking Car, Joe Huth and co-author David Bronstein performed over 60 brand new interviews with the cast and crew, giving an insiders look at the behind the scenes of the popular 80s show over the course of 520 pages!

We took the opportunity to ask Joe some questions about the book and his Knight Rider passion, continue to read our Q&A:



Diamond Select Toys is getting very close to releasing their 1:15 scale KITT model, complete with light effects and working sounds! Similar to the very popular Kenner model of yore, this KITT plays through several pre-recorded phrases (activated by pressing the gas tank door, and not the license plate), but DST really steps it up by adding a working scanner and lights and sounds to the presentation. This looks to be a great product for the collector and kid alike. They'll be releasing a KITT only model this year, with a KITT and Michael variant in January.

Check out the video below for a demo on the lights and sounds, as well as their press release after the jump!
