Before he became a global sensation as a singer and as the star of TV’s Baywatch, David Hasselhoff headlined the NBC television series Knight Rider as the high-tech crimefighter Michael Knight. Created and produced by Glen A. Larson (Battlestar Galactica, Magnum, P.I.), the show ran from 1982 to 1986 and famously featured Knight’s talking car, KITT, modeled after the Pontiac Trans Am.
Now, the El Rey Network will air a 10-hour marathon of the series on Hasselhoff’s birthday, Sunday, July 17th from 10AM ET to 8PM ET/PT, hosted by The Hoff himself.
Check out the promo video for the event here below.
The marathon will feature all four season-premiere double features, including the episode â€œGoliath,â€ where Hasselhoff also plays Michael Knightâ€™s evil twin Garthe!
You can also catch episodes of Knight Rider on weekday afternoons on El Rey Network.
