‘Get Christie Love’ Reboot From Vin Diesel, Courtney Kemp Gets Pilot Order at ABC

”Pitch’s“ Kylie Bunbury to star in adaptation of the 1970s blaxploitation movie and series

ABC has given a pilot order to the “Get Christie Love!” reboot from “Power” creator Courtney Kemp and executive producer Vin Diesel.

Inspired by the short-lived 1970s blaxploitation series, “Get Christie Love” is described as an “action-packed, music-driven drama” centering on the African American female CIA agent in charge of an elite ops unit.

“Pitch” star Kylie Bunbury is attached to star in the pilot as Christie Love, stepping in for Teresa Graves — who became the first black woman to star in a TV drama when the show first premiered on ABC in 1974.

The reboot will weave together elements of the character’s professional life, where she “transforms into whomever she needs to be to get the job done, especially when it’s down to the wire and the stakes are life and death” with “an emotional mystery about Christie’s first love.”

A Lionsgate-Universal Television co-production, the pilot will be written and executive produced by Kemp. Diesel and Shana Waterman of his One Race TV banner will also serve as executive producers alongside Debra Martin Chase.
