Sid and Marty Krofft’s classic ’70s series, Electra Woman and Dyna Girl, is being rebooted by Legendary Digital Media and Fullscreen, the companies announced Thursday.
The original series followed two superheros as they moved from Akron, Ohio, to Los Angeles in hopes that they would make it big in the crime-fighting world. But they will run into competition with other vigilantes and some fighting among themselves.
The companies want to bring the show to a new generation of viewers, which explains why they cast YouTube stars Grace Helbig (as Electra Woman) and Hannah Hart (Dyna Girl).
Both have large social media followings with a combined total of over 10 million subscribers and followers.
The reboot of the cult classic TV series will be directed by Chris Marrs Piliero, an award-winning director of music videos for top artists including Ariana Grande, Kesha and the Black Keys.
