Kathy Bates is a great actress, so I’m going to check this out. But this constant gender-swapping the past couple years really shows the lack of any creativity in Hollywood.

If they can’t come up with new interesting female characters, then they should remake/revive female-lead TV shows like ‘Alias’ , ‘Charlie's Angels’, ‘Murder, She Wrote’, ‘Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles’, ‘Damages’, ‘Xena: Warrior Princess’, ‘Dark Angel’, ‘The Bionic Woman’, and ‘Buffy the Vampire Slayer’

I wouldn't mind seeing Alias rebooted. That show was so good at the start with it's original concept then devolved into a complete mess.

I'd be interested in seeing a reboot of Alias as long as they stick to spy stories and avoid alien storylines.
