Production: What we know about Baywatch?
- Said to be a similar tonal vein as the recent 21 Jump Street movies.
- At one point the plot revolved around a series of shark attacks that led the Baywatch team to investigate a drug-smuggling operation. No word on current plot (Hollywood Reporter, 10/2/14).
- Based on the popular TV show. Insiders place the "Baywatch" adaptation in the context of a TV revamp like "Charlie's Angels" rather than "Starsky and Hutch," which indicates that female-driven action is also on the menu.
