'CHiPs' making NBC comeback
HOLLYWOOD, California (Variety) -- Director Doug Liman ("The Bourne Identity") is helping to develop an update of the 1970s action classic "CHiPs" for NBC.

Unlike the original, which starred Larry Wilcox ("Jon") and Erik Estrada ("Ponch") as two motorcycle cops in Los Angeles, the update will be set in San Francisco.

"At the end of the day, it's still a show about guys who ride extremely fast motorcycles for a living," said Liman.

The "CHiPs" project is one of a half-dozen being developed by Hypnotic, which Liman co-founded with former NBC Studios executive David Bartis about two years ago. Liman has set aside time this spring to direct at least one of the projects, depending on which scripts go forward as pilots.

Liman said he has "really committed" himself to working almost exclusively on TV projects this year, in part because of his desire to oversee projects that more accurately reflect the pop culture mood of the moment.

"Movies take so long to produce and the world can change while you're making them," he said. "TV can be so much more responsive to the zeitgeist and the world."
