Believe it or not, New Girl actress Hannah Simone will soon be walking on air as the Greatest American Hero in ABC's upcoming reboot of the short-lived '80s comedy series. Find out more after the jump...

We recently found out that the Greatest American Hero remake we've been hearing about for years had finally found a home at ABC as a half-hour, single camera comedy series, and now THR reports that the show has found its lead.

British-born Canadian actress/model Hannah Simone (New Girl, Kicking and Screaming) will star as Meera, a "30-year-old woman from Cleveland, whose talents include drinking tequila, singing karaoke and not much else. All that changes when some aliens entrust her with a super suit protect the planet."

The project is being developed by Fresh of The Boat team Nahnatchka Kahn and Rachna Fruchbom, and will be a re-imagining of a short-lived 1980s comedy drama series starring William Katt that has since found something of a cult following.
