Wishful Storytelling: Why Now is The Perfect Time For Warner Horizon to Do Knots Landing 2.0
The decorated Knots Landing police detective moved back on the Circle with her assistant district attorney husband Kyle (As The World Turns and All My Children alum Lamann Rucker) a few years earlier. The couple became fast friends with Kate and Brian. Julie thinks Kate is a damn fool to let a gorgeous, flirty young woman move into her home.
Kate insists Julie is being silly. Betsy is Molly's older sister (Gary is the young woman's biological father). She's like family! Besides, it's laughable to even consider the son of Abby Fairgate involved with Gary and Valene Ewing's daughter, right?
Julie's 14-year-old daughter Patricia has an insane crush on B.J. Cunningham. B.J., unbeknownst to his parents, has taken to getting high on "sizzurp", a prescription strength codeine coup syrup beverage, mixed with fruity candy. Beege, who has been largely ignored by his workaholic parents, and tennis superstar older sister, loves to get high on the potentially toxic concoction, referenced often in his favorite hip-hop songs.
Patti would do absolutely anything to be with B.J, including trying out the deadly drug that has her mother working 12-hour shifts trying to figure out who's been pushing sizzurp to Knots Landing's youth.
Will Julie crack the case before the devastating impact of sizzurp hits too close to home? Can Kate and Brian's marriage survive Hurricane Betsy? Will Greg learn about Paige's secret son? Is Lilliemae (Julie Harris) still trying to make it as a Country and Western singer? The only way we'll find out is if Warner Horizon readies a Knots Landing reboot, and fast!
