According to Deadline, United Kingdom-based television production and distribution company Fremantle is in talks with broadcasters and streaming services to revive the classic "Baywatch" series. The original beach drama, which aired between the 1980s and 2000s, starred David Hasselhoff and Pamela Anderson and has become an iconic cultural phenomenon.
The news of a potential reboot has already sparked fan interest, with former "WWE NXT" Women's Champion Mandy Rose appearing to hint at her involvement in the project.
Mandy Rose Teases 'Baywatch' Role Possibility
Rose, whose real name is Amanda Saccomanno, quote-retweeted the Deadline article with two "eyes" emojis, suggesting she is keeping a close eye on developing the new series.
Fans of the original "Baywatch" have already begun speculating that Rose could take on the role of C.J. Parker, the character famously played by Anderson in the original series. One fan replied to Rose's tweet, saying, "You'd make a good Pam Anderson," while another asked, "Fancy being Pamela?" Rose's interest in the potential "Baywatch" reboot comes after her abrupt released from her WWE contract in December 2022.
The 32-year-old was reportedly let go due to explicit content she was posting on the FanTime subscription service. However, Rose has stated in interviews that WWE approved the content and that her only offense was having a profile on a subscription-based platform.
After leaving WWE, Rose revealed she had made $1 million from her FanTime page in a month. Since she departed from WWE, Rose has kept busy with various projects, including modeling. She recently appeared on the cover of Fitness Gurls, which she revealed on social media was the tenth time she had featured on the front page of a magazine in her modeling career.
However, Rose has yet to return to television in acting roles, making her potential involvement in a "Baywatch" reboot an exciting prospect for her fans. The potential "Baywatch" reboot is still in the early stages of development, and no casting decisions have been announced.
However, with the iconic status of the original series and the enthusiastic fan response to the news of its revival, it's clear that the new version will have big shoes to fill. Whether or not Mandy Rose will be a part of the new "Baywatch" remains to be seen, but her interest in the project has undoubtedly piqued the interest of fans and industry insiders alike.
