British staple of the1980s, Bergerac, is to be given a reboot and is on its way back to television.

The series, which ran on the BBC between 1981 and 1991 and starred John Nettles as a Jersey-based detective sergeant and private investigator, is being given a contemporary makeover.

According to Variety:

Emmy-winning producer Gub Neal (“The Fall,” “Prime Suspect”) is leading the development for Artists Studios, serving as executive producer. Neal said the show would be updated for the present day, dealing with “contemporary stories-of-the-week that run alongside a strong serial spine.”

    Very interested to see who they get to play the lead role. That’s a difficult one to fill – Nettles will forever be defined as Bergerac for many viewers (although he had a hilarious cameo in Toast Of London which might put that right).
