Disney XD Developing ‘HERBIE’ TV Reboot Series

June 29, 2017


Disney XD is making plans to develop a reboot TV series of HERBIE. Herbie first appeared in the 1968 film The Love Bug and returned in 1974’s Herbie Rides Again, 1977’s Herbie Goes to Monte Carlo, 1980’s Herbie Goes Bananas, 1997’s TV film The Love Bug starring Bruce Campbell, and 2005’s Herbie Fully Loaded starring Lindsey Lohan. It also had a single season of a TV series back in 1982, Herbie, the Love Bug.

The anthropomorphic Volkswagen Beetle is known for his red, white and blue racing stripes and the number 53 painted on the side. Travis Braun (Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders) will write and will executive produce with Tom Burkhard and Matt Dearborn. The gender of the leading role has yet to be cast and is looking for a boy or a girl to play either Lili or Landon Reed. The character is described as part scientist, part entrepreneur, part daredevil. Lili/Landon’s parents have gone missing and the character discovers that they’ve been part of a secret government project dealing with a talking car named Herbie. Criminals are on the trail of this secret project as well.
