We had heard that ABC was going to make a TV movie based on the Big Thunder Mountain Railroad ride at the parks, however it turns out that they will be making a TV show instead, titled “Big Thunder.” The show will be a drama inspired by the ride.
In “Big Thunder” viewers will follow a 19th century New York doctor and his family who relocate to a frontier mining town run by a powerful tycoon (please cast Terry O’Quinn!).
The show will be written by Jason Fuchs and executive produced by Chris Morgan. Who else would you like to see in the show?
