Our sources have revealed to us that there is going to be a new version of the very short lived but popular 1978 dramatic series The White Shadow coming to television, and with a new name.
In case you are not familiar with the series The White Shadow, it starred Ken Howard as Ken Reeves, a white former NBA professional who retired from the pro game and got a job as a basketball coach in a predominantly black inner-city high school. The series developed into how a white coach tried to teach his players about life, and how to deal with real life issues.
Anyway, we hear the new series is co-executive produced, written by and directed by actor Larry B. Scott (of Revenge Of The Nerds fame and The Karate Kid fame), with the show to be titled My New Life. The show is still rounding out the new cast but we hear Olivia Brown (of Miami Vice fame), Jazsmin Lewis (Of Barbershop and Three Can Play That Game fame) and Eddie Valez (of General Hospital) is attached so far.
As the news develops on this show we will bring it to you, including which network you can catch it on.
