Max Headroom: TV Movie and first episode (which are almost the same thing), the next episode, and a bunch of web articles.

How has this not been reboot/renewed/revisited?

Max Headroom was a thing 30 years ago. Now, we get a modern CyberPunk future, like something from Ready Player One, and Max Headroom "wakes up" when some crypto-virus tries to spread into his old, offline box. Max, of course, takes over the virus, and there's your new show premise.

This time, Max is entirely CGI, because we can do that. We also get some good coders to make some real-world phone apps to take a person's picture and "Max" it, so you can get a Max Headroom version of anyone. `Lex Headroom, for example.

Show thread

Obviously, the entire thing keeps the 80s Neon CyberPunk aesthetic, too. I am sure we could get La Roux to do the soundtrack.
