Here's the link from The Hollywood Reporter:

I'd like to say "hooray" but I'm going to have to withhold judgment primarily because of one line in the description, that the travelers are battling "their own personal demons." A pre-teen boy battling his "own personal demons"?

James: Thanks, Artie.
Artemus: "Thanks Artie"! Is that all you can say to me? I've just come back from the grave, risen like Lazarus, and that's what you say? "Thanks, Artie"?
James: Thanks, Artie.
Artemus: It's a pleasure.

Hmmm, I'm a big fan of the show, I watched it back in the 60's, I own the DVDs, but I'm not sure about this project.

I hate to sound too cynical, but do you really think they can match the mood of the original show complete with all that gorgeous John Williams music? Too bad I'm such a purist.

I get the sense that they don't intend to match the original show. I'm wondering if they'll have any kids on board. I always wonder why they claim they are "rebooting" an old TV show and then completely rewrite it. About all they usually use are the name of the show and perhaps the names of characters.

James: Thanks, Artie.
Artemus: "Thanks Artie"! Is that all you can say to me? I've just come back from the grave, risen like Lazarus, and that's what you say? "Thanks, Artie"?
James: Thanks, Artie.
