Um. I feel that this idea has promise.
The Hollywood Reporter reports (<--Heh.) that ABC is developing a Huck Finn/Tom Sawyer reboot described as "an adventure-themed reinvention that revolves around the two famed literary characters who re-meet as young men in their 20s and form an investigative firm in a bustling and steampunk New Orleans".
If done well, it could be loads of fun.
If not, well, we can just mock it.
