The reboot starred Stuart Townsend as Carl Kolchak and Gabrielle Union (impossibly beautiful) as Perri Reed, both reporters for a Los Angeles newspaper (impossibly quaint, watching in 2018). Kolchak is fixated on unusual/supernatural cases, trying to explain his wife's murder. Reed is a skeptic but gets drawn in and has to admit that there's some pretty strange stuff going on out there. It's like X-Files-lite, but due to the early cancellation, the cast never really had a chance to develop much chemistry.
I liked it - weird and supernatural are my jam, of course - and it's certainly not a huge time commitment. The most challenging part of Night Stalker is just finding it - currently on DVD from Netflix, dunno where else.
