Variety reports that House creator-exec producer David Shore has signed on to create an updated version of The Rockford Files for NBC. The original series, which ran from 1974-1980, starred James Garner as an ex-con private eye living in Malibu. Working with Steve Carell’s Carousel Television, Shore will reportedly bring the show to the present day while keeping the basic premise intact. NBC has yet to announce a start date for the series.
