‘Battlestar Galactica’ EP David Eick Sells ‘Walking Tall’ TV Remake Featuring Charlotte Flair To USA Network & Sci-Fi Drama ‘The Zone Of Silence’ To Peacock

Exclusive: David Eick, one of the exec producers of the 2003 version of Battlestar Galactica and a number of its spinoffs, has closed a couple of developments with the NBCU family.

The writer/producer is developing a remake of 1973 feature film Walking Tall, which was later remade with Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson, at USA Network and a Romancing the Stone-esque sci-fi series at Peacock.

WWE star Charlotte Flair (left), who featured in Psych: The Movie, is attached to star in the reboot, which has received a script sale from the cable network and is being set up as a two-hour TV movie with the hope of future instalments or as an ongoing series.

Flair, the daughter of WWE legend Ric Flair, will play a Tucson cop who finds herself caught in a web of fraud, exploitation and murder, and is forced to go full vigilante to protect her home town from falling victim to modern corruption.
