New Girl's Hannah Simone is ABC's new Greatest American Hero
Simone will play Meera, an Indian-American woman from Cleveland whose only "talents" are drinking tequila and singing karaoke, who is entrusted by aliens with a super suit to protect the planet. Simone, whose father is of Indian descent, takes over the role played originally by William Katt in the early-1980s ABC series. The Greatest American Hero reboot is from Fresh Off the Boat showrunner Nahnatchka Kahn and her colleague Rachna Fruchbom.
