We'll freely admit it - The Greatest American Hero was WAY before our time, but weirdly, we remember the exact lyrics to the theme song. So that's something.

FOX have given the green light for a pilot for The Greatest American Hero, by none other than Phil Lord and Chris Miller. Have you been to the cinema this year? Watched Lego Movie? 22 Jump Street? That's them.

The original series saw Hanley, a struggling inner-city teacher who finds a supersuit that allows him to fly, have super strength and generally be a hero - except that he's a bumbling idiot and he gets into all kinds of scrapes.

Nobody's cast in the central role as yet, but we're looking forward to hearing this with more regularity again.
