I will try it for sure but three letters will screw it up: NBC. Because of that, it will fail and I won't give it much thought. But I liked the original and will give it a shot. I want to see NBC succeed, I do, but with all there cancelizations and dropping good shows, I haven't given NBC a shot for at least 2 years now. So why should I start,
Either that, or it will somehow be really, really good and they'll cancel it anyways.
No, two words, as cj9788 and balboadave said: Bryan Fuller. I'd watch even if he were remaking a used-car commercial.
I have no idea who that is. If it's the director, I never pay attention to who directs a show. Or produces it. Or writes it.
On a hopeful note, it could be like the 2004 Battlestar Galactica was a darker, more complex reboot of the fairly cheesy late 70s version,
Another one I've never watched because of the darker, more complex treatment.
Same with the Batman movies. Darker, less campy doesn't mean better.
