HIGHWAY TO HEAVEN, REBOOT

The reboot of the popular 80s show Highway to Heaven is almost here. In this article we will discuss the release date, cast and what we know so far about the reboot. Tony Danza and Mark Hamill are set to headline the show that is scheduled for a run of just eight episodes. The story follows an angel named Jonathan Smith (played by Hamill) who helps various people in crisis with guidance from his boss Michael Delaney (played by Danza).

Parts of the show will be filmed in Napa Valley, as well as the Pacific Northwest. This is Danza’s first leading role on a TV series since 2010 when he starred in Who’s Watching The Kids? while Hamill has been an actor for decades but also voiced Luke Skywalker in Star Wars: A New Hope and the Star Wars sequels. The show will not be a direct remake, but rather an adaptation of the original series that aired between 1981 and 1984 on NBC. The new series is being filmed as part of the Amazon Prime Video service which also includes shows like Transparent, Mozart in the Jungle and Catastrophe.

Plot

The new series will center on a recently widowed life coach who helps those in crisis. After his wife’s death, Jonathan Smith (Hamill) heads to New York City and takes over as the guardian angel for Monica Harrison (Danza).
