TEAM KNIGHT RIDER INFORMATION
WHEN WILL IT PREMIER
The week of October 6, 1997
WHERE CAN I SEE IT
New York WWOR
Los Angeles KCOP
San Francisco KBHK
This is a very early list. The show is being released directly to
syndication and marketed as a companion show to "Hercules" and "Xena".
So, a good starting point would to be look for TKR on the same
stations that air these other Universal Television shows.
WHO IS IN IT
Kathy Trageser - Plays Erica, the TKR member who comes up with the wild ideas that end up saving the day.
Christina Steel - Plays the TKR second-in-command
Brixton Karnes - He's Kyle, the team leader
Duane Davis - Plays the African-American of the team, a former cop
Nick Wechsler - Plays young, extremely rich entrepreneur-type, who joins TKR for a new challenge.
WHAT IS IT ABOUT
The premise is that the TKR is an elite group working for F.L.A.G., The Foundation for Law and Government. TKR's mission is to obliterate global threats. The accent is on action, lots of chases and explosions, but no graphic violence. Also, humor will play a large role in the series.
WHAT ABOUT THE CARS
The names for the five vehicles are as follows: The Beast (an F150 pickup), Domino (a red convertible), Dante (leader's four-by-four), Kat (a motorcycle), Plato (another motorcycle, which can "merge" with Kat to form one vehicle). Each vehicle has a unique personality that rivals that of its driver, and vehicle and driver don't always agree.
WHAT ABOUT OUR OLD FAVORITES
David and William are both confermed to appear in TKR. David as a guest and William as a guest reprising his role as KITT.
(UPDATE: Neither David nor William appeared in the series during it's existance. The character of "Michael Knight" appeared in the last episode of the series, when the TKR team was visiting the grave of Michael Knight, a figure appears but only from the back and not played by Hasselhoff stating that he is Michael Knight or used to be.
