We were watching Star Trek or something the other night, and while fast forwarding through the commercials, noticed the words "Unsolved Mysteries." It was a commercial promoting the return of the classic show. Here's what I found at wikipedia:
'According to Broadcasting & Cable, HBO Distribution plans to bring back Unsolved Mysteries when the cable channel Lifetime contract expires in 2008. The show will feature a new set, same music, recaps on old cases, as well as new cases, and a new host. The show will be on SpikeTV, in October 2008, for 5 years, and 175 episodes, featuring the same theme music and hosted by actor Dennis Farina.
Unsolved Mysteries will relaunch on Monday, October 13, at 5 p.m., and 6 p.m., ET Time'
It was cheesy, yes, but I loved that show, and hope the new version lives up to the old--although without Robert Stack's perfect voice, it might be difficult. At least they're keeping the music.
Interesting that Lifetime--a women's network--had the rights to this show, and now Spike, a men's network has them. I read somewhere that over half of Spike's viewers are actually women...
