As i understand it, Larson has not been involved with the show in any capacity, and actually doesn't care for it. The Consulting Producer credit is just a legal thing.
So it makes sense that Larson would want his own shot, but I think it's a dumb idea destined for failure. The Knight Rider remake isn't exactly a hit. Larson's a hack.
my bad, i didn't realize they put his name because of legal obligations. I just wish that he would leave it be. I was a big fan of the original(not bsg1980), but that time has passed. I will keep an open mind,since that is what led me to love this show.
