Hannah Simone is ready to kick butt.
“Fresh Off The Boat” creator Nahnatchka Khan and writer-producer Rachna Fruchbom are set to serve as executive producers of the half-hour comedy. Fruchbom also wrote the script for the pilot.
Simone is lined up to play Meera, a 30-year-old woman who — despite the wishes of her Indian-American family — leads a pretty unfulfilling life packed with tequila and karaoke, according to Deadline. That is, until she meets aliens who give her a special suit that will help her save the world.
It’s a role that sounds perfect for Simone.
“The Greatest American Hero” initially ran from 1981 to 1983. The one-hour show starred William Katt as a teacher who, during a field trip, met extraterrestrials who gave him a red costume with amazing powers.
