Speaking at a meeting of the Bones creative team at the WGA picket line, Hart continued, “It’s complicated now because Fox aired ‘Bones’ but Disney bought 20th now, so they own[the show]. It would take a million agents and lawyers to figure out who owns what and what platform it would be displayed on. But we keep talking. And every now and then we all get so nostalgic that we think, “Maybe we should do it again.” Who knows? Maybe that will give us a boost.”
Asked if the show’s leads, Emily Deschanel and David Boreanaz, would reprise their respective roles as Temperance Brennan and Seeley Booth, Hart said, “We heard they wouldn’t be playable, which is a step up from the actors.” are going to tell the truth, which means it depends on what it is, on the scripts, on how it looks, on whether it feels right. They won’t do anything just because it’s us.”
