KITT - aka the Knight Industries Two Thousand, is back in a sequel to the iconic Ď80s original. Knight Rider returns to the UK SciFi Channel on Tuesday 12th May 2009 at 8pm in a two-hour feature-length movie, and follows weekly every Tuesday. The Hoff is out and Val Kilmer is in.

Okay, this time things are a little different. It might not have The Hoff at the wheel (although he does make a cameo in the pilot episode) and itís a 2008 Ford Shelby Mustang rather than a TransAm Pontiac, but K.I.T.T.ís got a new voice in the form of actor Val Kilmer.

Whatís more, itís undergone a complete revamp from its predecessor. This KITTís now capable of hacking into almost any security system and has the weapons capability of a jet fighter. It can also morph into the shape of other vehicles and uses sophisticated holographic imagery to elude villains.
