KNIGHT RIDER - THE COMPLETE SERIES (NBC 1982-1986) RETAIL QUALITY! David Hasselhoff, Edward Mulhare, William Daniels, Patricia McPherson, Rebecca Holden
Knight Rider is an American action crime drama series created and produced by Glen A. Larson. The series was originally broadcast on NBC from September 26, 1982, to April 4, 1986. The show stars David Hasselhoff as Michael Knight, a sleek and modern crime fighter assisted by KITT (voiced by William Daniels), an advanced, artificially intelligent, self-aware, and nearly indestructible car.
Self-made billionaire Wilton Knight rescues police Detective Lieutenant Michael Arthur Long after a near-fatal shot to the face, giving him a new identity (by plastic surgery) and a new name: Michael Knight. Wilton selects Michael to be the primary field agent in the pilot program of his public justice organization, the Foundation for Law and Government (FLAG). The other half of this pilot program is the Knight Industries Two Thousand (KITT), a heavily modified, technologically advanced Pontiac Firebird Trans Am with numerous features, including a highly durable shell and frame, controlled by a computer with artificial intelligence. Michael and KITT are brought in during situations where "direct action might provide the only feasible solution".
Heading FLAG is Devon Miles (Edward Mulhare), who provides Michael with directives and guidance. Dr. Bonnie Barstow (Patricia McPherson) is the chief engineer in charge of KITT's care and a technical assistant to Devon (Seasons 1, 3 and 4). April Curtis (Rebecca Holden) filled this role in Season 2.
This was the last series Larson devised at Universal Television before he moved to 20th Century Fox Television.
