Jonathan Hart + Dan Hartman

"This is my boss - Jonathan Hart, a self-made millionaire. He’s quite a guy. This is Mrs. H – she’s gorgeous. What a terrific lady. By the way, my name is Max. I take care of them, which ain't easy, 'cause their hobby is murder."
Opening credits, narrated by Max, the butler (Season 1)

"This is my boss - Jonathan Hart, a self-made millionaire. He’s quite a guy. This is Mrs. H – she’s gorgeous. She’s one lady who knows how to take care of herself. By the way, my name is Max. I take care of both of them – which ain’t easy; ‘cause when they met, it was murder."

Jonathan Hart, successful CEO of Hart Industries, a global conglomerate based in Los Angeles, lives a happy jetset lifestyle with his wife Jennifer, a freelance journalist who solves crimes together with him. At least this is the case during the "Hart to Hart" television series with Robert Wagner and Stefanie Powers originally released from 1979 to 1984 (via). NBC network is currently considering a remake of the series in which Jennifer Hart is replaced by Dan Hartman ... the Harts become a gay couple (via). According to a description, the new show will be "A modern and sexy retelling of the classic series" about "attorney Jonathan Hart and free-spirited investigator Dan Hartman, who must balance the two sides of their life: action-packed crime-solving in the midst of newly found domesticity.” (via). Release date and casting are not yet communicated but one thing is sure: "If it's done right, a gay-themed adventure/mystery series could be groundbreaking (...)" (via).
