Sidney Sheldon's original show ran from 1979-1984 and eight further telefilms were produced in the 1990s. The story followed a wealthy couple (Robert Wagner and Stefanie Powers) who often acted as amateur detectives.
The new version is described as a modern and sexy retelling which teams attorney Jonathan Hart and free-spirited investigator Dan Hartman who balance action-packed crime-solving with newly found domesticity.
Christopher Fife will pen the project which Mendelsohn and Julie Weitz will executive produce. The show already has a script commitment plus penalty at NBC.
The project hails from producer Carol Mendelsohn and Sony TV, and is based on the ABC series that ran from 1979-1984 and starred Robert Wagner and Stefanie Powers. Christopher Fife is on board to write, and will executive produce with Mendelsohn and Julie Weitz.
According to Variety sister site Deadline, who first broke the news, the new “Hart to Hart” is described as a modern and sexy retelling of the classic series that focuses on “by the book” attorney Jonathan Hart and free-spirited investigator Dan Hartman, who must balance the two sides of their life: action-packed crime-solving in the midst of newly found domesticity.

As ever, our friends at ITV have published the list of songs to be performed, as well as the artist who performed the version being covered.
Halloween classics 'Bat Out of Hell' and 'Thriller' are of course present and correct. 'Highway To Hell' is also suitably screamy.
'Relight My Fire' is the Take That/Lulu version rather than the Dan Hartman disco classic. We think it's allowed because Hell is fiery and that.
'Everybody (Backstreet's Back)' gets in because of its spooky video, rather than the song itself.
Similarly, we're guessing 'Mad World' gets a pass because of Gary Jules's dark reworking for Richard Kelly's 2001 classic Donnie Darko, but Jay James will apparently be doing the bouncy Tears For Fears original.
'Bleeding Love'? For Halloween? We

My favourite TV ad of the year so far is the Let Yourself Go spot for Kangaroo Island.
When it didn’t win Mumbrella’s Ad of the Month for March (it came third) I felt aggrieved for the agency that made it. But less so a week later when it emerged that the agency had paid celebrities to tweet nice things about its work.
Let Yourself Go is a stunning spot with lots of pretty images. But it would probably have had a similar effect on me if I’d watched a blank screen for 60 seconds.
John Baker of Adelaide ad agency Kwp!, which made the ad, told me that the music (Rise by Pearl Jam singer Eddie Vedder) “is 50% of the communication”. For me,
The Coles version of the Dan Hartman classic replaces the word ‘Replay’ with ‘Reward’, alerting its customers to the ten dollars they will save on groceries when using the Coles MasterCard.
The ad was created by Ted Horton’s Big Red Agency, and breaks at the same time as Woolworths launched an ad to fight back against Coles in the freshness stakes.
Jon Church, Coles’ comms director, said: “It’s a bit of fun and in an otherwise fairly vanilla personal finance market should stand out. It’s a great product which we’re keen to shout about and a good example of the Coles brand ‘quality that costs less’ message stretching beyond food.”

Rock guitarist Ronnie Montrose, who played on recordings from a wide variety of rock artists over a 40-year career, died on Saturday at age 64 after a long battle with prostate cancer.
A tribute posted on his official website read, "A few months ago, we held a surprise party for Ronnie Montrose's 64th birthday. He gave an impromptu speech, and told us that after a long life, filled with joy and hardship, he didn't take any of our love for granted. He passed today. He'd battled cancer, and staved off old age for long enough. And true to form, he chose his own exit the way he chose his own life. We miss him already, but we're glad to have shared with him while we could."
Born in San Francisco on November 29, 1947, Montrose picked up the
Swedish TV is set to air a new series based on It Gets Better, and their inspiration was Fort Worth Councilman Joel Burns. One person can make a difference. Matthew Morrison has revealed that he and Gwyneth Paltrow will duet on "Over the Rainbow" for his upcoming solo album. This is what it sounds like when the bluebirds cry.
It seems like every studio-released movie today comes pre-packaged with a shiny soundtrack (Iron Man 2's AC/DC fest is a riff on 1986's Maximum Overdrive).
Sometimes a big hit emerges from the mix, but most often, songs used to promote the film in another venue, say iTunes, quickly disappear into the ether.
Gone, but not entirely forgotten, most, if not all, of the following songs from movies have found their way to the afterlife of YouTube.
Here are ten top tunes to seek out...
Sweet Talkin' Candy Man (Beyond The Valley Of The Dolls)
Beyond The Valley Of The Dolls features the usual perks of a Russ Meyer flick (including a star turn by Dolly Read), great rapid-fire editing, and boasts a script full of quotable lines by Roger Ebert.
