CBS Readying Updated Version of ‘Wild, Wild West’ With ‘Galactica’s’ Ron Moore on Board

Ron Moore, the man who rebooted "Battlestar Galactica" into a hit series, is now taking on a reboot of the 1960s CBS Western action drama "The Wild, Wild West," reports Deadline.com.

Moore is teaming on the project with Naren Shankar, a former executive producer/showrunner for "CSI."

Like "Hawaii Five-0," CBS is hoping for "The Wild Wild West" to capture the spirit of the original show while giving it a new spin.

"The Wild Wild West" starred Robert Conrad and Ross Martin as secret agents in the 1870s, working for President Ulysses S. Grant. It ran from 1965-69 and inspired a 1999 feature film version that starred Will Smith and Kevin Kline, which failed miserably.
