USA Network’s two-hour movie Nash Bridges has been given a Thanksgiving weekend premiere date. It will debut on Saturday, November 27.
The film brings back original cast members Don Johnson and Cheech Marin as elite investigators for the San Francisco Police Department’s Special Investigations Unit. The film is part of the US custom programming strategy that focuses on event scripting. If the movie does well, it could be a Nash Bridges series revival.
In addition to Johnson and Marin, the film brings back original Nash Bridges cast member Jeff Perry. They are joined in the cast by new recruits Joe Dicol, Diarra Kilpatrick, Angela Ko, Paul James, Alexia Garcia and Bonnie Sommerville.
Produced by Village Roadshow Television, which also owns the rights to Carlton Cuse’s original series, the film was written by Bill Chais and directed by Greg Beeman.
Johnson, Chais and Beeman co-produce with Cuse, who was not creatively involved in the film.
Nash Bridges originally ran for six seasons (1996-2001) on CBS.
