The cult '60s sci-fi series "Lost in Space" will be remade as an original show for Netflix. The original series, produced by Irwin Allen, was only modestly successful when aired on CBS for three seasons beginning in 1965. The show was a clever space aged remake of "Swiss Family Robinson", with a family of the future finding itself stranded in outer space. Along the way they meet numerous alien species and share exotic adventures. The series has developed a strong cult following over the decades with many fans nostalgic for the series' infamous use of threadbare, cheesy sets and the emphasis on overt humor. Attempts to revive the series have not been successful to date. A 1998 big screen version was loathed by fans of the original show. Plans to bring the show back as a series stalled once before, never moving beyond the pilot stage. Netflix hopes the third time will be the charm. For more click here.
