Show synopsis

After Police officer Michael Long was rescued by wealthy philanthropist Wilton Knight following a near-fatal shooting, he received a new identity as Michael Knight (David Hasselhoff) and joined the Foundation for Law and Government (FLAG). He and his partner KITT (the Knight Industries Two Thousand), an artificially intelligent car, travel the country fighting crime.
