Der-Mutt-Mul … Really? Yep, he’s the new Jim Rockford.

This will be the actor’s first venture into series television. At least the project comes from the capable hands of David Shore, the man who brought you ‘House.’ Steve Carell of ‘The Office‘ is also attached as co-executive producer.
“What makes ‘Rockford’ timeless is that he’s vulnerable, he’s flawed. He’s used to hustling and getting hustled,” Shore told Variety at the time of the remake’s announcement. “I had no interest in adapting any old stuff, but this was the one exception,” he added.
