Actress Angie Harmon is convinced a Baywatch revamp would be a ratings winner after witnessing the success of the new Dallas series.
The Law & Order star, who played detective Ryan McBride in the beach drama and its spin-off Baywatch Nights, has echoed her former co-star David Hasselhoff’s call to launch an update of the show.
She tells the New York Daily News, “Look at Dallas now – with the whole younger generation it has worked. That would be genius, amazing… all these hot young people running around on the beach and saving lives.
“David was always in great shape. It is so funny, back then he had a huge trailer and all the weights, which were air-pressurised. He is so self-deprecating he would be hilarious. He totally should do it.”
The Dallas revamp won over audiences in 2012 after relaunching with original favourites Linda Gray, Patrick Duffy and the late Larry Hagman alongside younger stars including Josh Henderson and Jesse Metcalfe.
