Mark Burnett is teaming with Ralph Edwards Prods. for a remake of the classic TV show "This Is Your Life."

"Life," which surprises celebrity guests with people from their past, launched as a radio program in 1948. It aired as a TV series on NBC from 1952-61, then had a brief revival in 1972.

Most recently, ABC developed a remake in 2005 with Fox TV Studios, but the project, to be hosted by Regis Philbin, never made it to air.

" 'This Is Your Life' is one of the most enduring programs to air on television, and we are thrilled to be bringing it back with the top producer of unscripted entertainment," said Barbara Dunn-Leonard, president of Ralph Edwards Prods., which owns the rights to the format.

Broadcasters have shown recent interest in biographical reality shows. Fox's dark-side effort "The Moment of Truth," NBC's "Amnesia" and ABC's "Opportunity Knocks" are game shows »
