Answer: Michael Long
Knight Rider ran from September 26, 1982, to August 8, 1986. Before his Baywatch days, and before he became a parody of himself, David Hasselhoff was Michael Long is an undercover Las Vegas police detective who, while on a case, was shot in the face and nearly killed.
Self-made billionaire Wilton Knight rescued him, directed his doctors to reconstruct Long’s face, and gave him a new identity – Michael Knight.
Michael was selected to be the primary field agent in the pilot program of the Knight Industries-funded public justice organization, the Foundation for Law and Government (FLAG). The other half of this pilot program – what we all know and love – was the Knight Industries Two Thousand (KITT), a heavily modified Pontiac Trans Am with numerous features including an extremely durable shell and frame, controlled by a computer with artificial intelligence. Michael and KITT were brought in during situations where “direct action might provide the only feasible solution”.
Heading FLAG was Devon Miles, who provides Michael with directives and guidance. Dr. Bonnie Barstow was the chief engineer in charge of KITT’s care, as well as technical assistant to Devon.
