Exclusive: December 2008 Archives

While visiting the set we bumped into actor Paul Campbell, who plays Billy Morgan. He was not scheduled to be in any of the scenes for that day, but neither he nor KITT would reveal what they were up to. We were however able to pry a few secrets out of him about the upcoming episodes. Check out the video above or the images from set below.

The job of a Propmaster requires alot of responsibility. They are responsible for creating or obtaining the props that will be used in any episode, an undoubtedly at times daunting task.

Fortunately for the team at Knight Rider, they have the experience of Steve Whiteside on their team. The only member of the crew to have worked on the original series, his usefulness to the cast and crew is limitless. Be sure to stay tuned to the end of the video above for a message from Steve to how we can all help Knight Rider.

Above you see one of the most iconic images from the classic Knight Rider. It's of David Hasselhoff sitting on the the hood of KITT on the back lot of Universal Studios. We were on set yesterday the opportunity presented itself to try and recreate a little nostalgia and history of that moment.

Below is our updated version with Justin Bruening, it really shows how well the spirit of Michael Knight has been captured.

Of course, costar Paul Campbell couldn't let Justin have all the fun and insisted on giving it a shot.

We still have a few videos from Sues visit to the set on Friday to post as well as coverage from both Michael and Sue visiting on Tuesday and Wednesday of this week. So be sure to check back, lots of exciting stuff to share on the way to the relaunch.

Visual Effects Set Supervisor Eliza Pelham Randall describes for us in an exclusive interview how they are going to pull off one of the major stunts of Episode Seventeen by incorporating real and digital aspects. Spoiler alert. See video above.

It would appear that there are not too many dull moments on the Knight Rider set. We arrived just after some four or five thousand rounds of ammunition had been shot off. Throughout the rest of the night the bullet casings clinked underfoot. We knew we were going to be in for a treat at the end of the night because periodically the props department would set off a test of some of the pyrotechnics they had in store. Watch our relatively spoiler free video and stay tuned for more to come.

We were lucky enough to have the opportunity to probe staff writers Rachel Mellon and Teresa Huang, the writers for "I Wanna Rock & Roll All Knight". They discuss what secrets the writers room might have in the works for us after the Holidays. We also compare notes on the Hasselhoff rumors. Check out the video below.

With our latest visit to the set there was one nagging question on our minds. Does the reduction in the episode order signify the series cancellation? Show Runner Gary Scott Thompson reassured us with his answer in the following video.

Business is proceeding as usual on the set of Knight Rider. Our good friend Jaime (who also caught the first picks of Attack KITT in the wild) caught them at the Los Angeles Center Studios yesterday filming a scene from episode 17, the now final episode of the season. There are no spoilers revealed in these images that we can see, just some shots of our favorite Mustang.
