Lost In Space Remake Finds The Best Home Possible.

It’s been over a year since we heard that the classic 1960s sci-fi series was getting a TV remake from Dracula Untold writers Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless, but since then we haven’t heard of any progress on the project. But that changes today as the series remake has landed at Netflix, arguably the best place for a series like Lost in Space to go so it doesn’t have to contend with all the rigmarole of network television. The project, which caused a bidding war, is still early in development, and the basic story isn’t changing things up drastically from the original series. We’ll still follow a young explorer family (and presumably a stowaway) from earth lost in an alien universe and the challenges they face in staying together against seemingly insurmountable odds.

Smith (Jonathan Harris) sabotages the navigation system, they become helpless and, yes, lost. (The robot tasked with protecting the youngest child, the precocious Will, utters “Danger, Will Robinson!” — a phrase that still tortures this reporter.) Burns worked closely Sheila Allen, the widow of series creator Irwin Allen, from 2000 to her death in 2013 to develop a series. Other executive producers include writers Sazama and Sharpless along with Marc Helwig of Legendary TV-based Applebox and Kevin Burns of Synthesis Entertainment. The new series is described as being an epic but grounded science fiction saga, so it likely won’t get too wild as far as the outlook of the future goes. Four of the original cast members reunited at the Entertainment Weekly Lounge at Comic-Con last summer to celebrate the Blu-ray collection of the series for its 50th anniversary. “Half a century ago, we left Earth,” original Will Robinson Bill Mumy said at the time. “And now we’re finally back.” When you look at the 1965 series which took place 32 years in the future in 1997, their glimpse at the future was full of ray guns, goofy spaceships, and now cartoonish robots.

Smith, who seemed to speak only in alliteration, as well as the Robot’s famed “Danger Will Robinson” line, became pop culture icons we still reference today.
