Is "Highway to Heaven" on the highway to a reboot? That's the word according to The Hollywood Reporter.
According to the trade, "Hell on Wheels" veteran John Wirth is writing the script based on the classic Michael Landon drama. Mark Wahlberg would serve as executive producer.
Landon played angel-on-probation Jonathan Smith, who worked with a human sidekick on divinely assigned projects in the hopes of getting back to heaven.
A&E's other currently scripted projects include "Longmire," "Bates Motel" and the upcoming "Those Who Kill."
