ABC to pilot 'Beauty and the Beast'...again

Just for you avid fans of Beauty and the Beast out there, ABC's kindly decided to double B&B reboots this pilot season.

Jonathan E. Steinberg, Gary Fleder and Mary Beth Basile will be working on this one.

Interestingly enough, this is also the second B&B project ordered to pilot this month, as CW has recently shared a modern-day take on the 1980s CBS drama that starred Ron Perlman as Vincent (Beast) and Linda Hamilton as Catherine (Beauty).

Jennifer Levin, Sherri Cooper, Paul Witt, C. Anthony Thomas, Ron Koslow and Bill Haber will be working together for that project.

As for the facts of various B&B movies:

The 1991 Disney animated feature was voiced by Angela Lansbury and Jerry Orbach, along with others, and grossed more than $387 million worldwide.

The 1987 CBS live-action drama ran for three seasons, and even last year's feature adaptation of Alex Finn's 2007 novel Beastly collected $28 million domestically.

Which drama will you guys be watching?
