Someone at Disney really loves the Love Bug: Herbie is currently in development as a potential series on Disney XD, a rep for the network confirms to TVLine exclusively.

The iconic, anthropomorphic Volkswagen Beetle first appeared in Disney’s 1968 film The Love Bug and has been the subject of several movies — including the Lindsay Lohan-fronted 2005 movie Herbie: Fully Loaded. He’s also already been the subject of a 1982 television series, the one-season Herbie, the Love Bug, and a made-for-TV movie.

We hear that Travis Braun (Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders) will write the potential series, and that he’ll executive-produce alongside Tom Burkhard and Matt Dearborn (Zeke and Luther, Even Stevens).

TVLine also has learned that the potential reboot is looking for a girl or boy to play Lili or Landon Reed; it appears that Herbie hasn’t cemented whether the lead child will be male or female. Lili/Landon is “part scientist, part entrepreneur, part daredevil” and realizes, when her/his parents go missing, that they’ve secretly been working on a government project: a talking car named Herbie. Herbie is key to helping the kid reunite with her/his parents, but a gang of criminals also wants to get its paws on the state-of-the-art vehicle.

As a lifelong Herbie fan, this definitely peaks my interest. Who knows, through this we might finally see a DVD or Blu-Ray release, of the underrated 90s TV film.

At this point I have zero faith that this is going to turn out any good. I've been hurt by too many crappy Disney reboots that I've kind of gone numb to the idea. Plus being on Disney XD doesn't help.
