Questor Tapes being developed for TV

From I see that Gene Roddenberry's The Questor Tapes are once again on tap for TV.
  • Roddenberry Productions has entered into a deal with Ron Howard’s Imagine Television to develop Gene Roddenberry’s 1970s pilot "The Questor Tapes" into a new TV series.
  • In the 1970s, after the end of the original Star Trek on NBC .... Gene Roddenberry developed a number of sci-fi TV shows which were turned into pilot TV movies, but never picked up as series.... One of these projects was called "The Questor Tapes" which was originally conceived as a television series pilot about an android (played by Robert Foxworth) with incomplete memory tapes who searches for his creator and his purpose. The pilot aired as a TV movie in January of 1974. Star Trek producer Gene Coon also worked on the pilot with (Gene and ) Majel Barrett Roddenberry .... NBC had agreed to a 13 episode commitment, but after failing to agree on changes with Roddenberry, the project was scrapped.
There are a bunch of other really interesting facts about Gene Roddenberry's post Star Trek career. You can read more here
