Are we going back to the days of good ole family comedy, Cosby-style?
As reported on Yahoo TV Bill Cosby is hoping to get back on television again with a family comedy.
The legendary comedian is hoping to land a sitcom again working with “The Cosby Show” executive producer, Tom Werner. “I want to deliver a wonderful show to [a] network,” Cosby stated. “Because there is a viewership out there that wants to see comedy, and warmth, and love, and surprise, and cleverness, without going into the party attitude.
Cosby’s idea for a new show will not be the same or a rehash from the classic 80’s-90’s series.
“They would like to see a married couple that acts like they love each other, warts and all, children who respect the parenting, and the comedy of people who make mistakes. Warmth and forgiveness. So I hope to get that opportunity, and I will deliver the best of Cosby, and that will be a series, I assume, that we could get enough people week after week after week to tune in to, to come along with us.” Cosby said.
Cosby is also hoping a network might give his second idea a chance too. “Fat Albert”, yes the same classic cartoon series is Cosby’s second idea. He’s working on this project with writer, producer Tom Straw, who they worked on Cosby’s 90’s sitcom, “Cosby”. “I want some network to say to us, ‘Alright, we’re going to give you the money to do one show,’ just to lay it out … I just want one shot, because I know that what I am envisioning … they’ve never seen anything like this on TV. The laughter, the stories,” says Cosby.
They are still in the developmental stages, but if this comes to fruition, we could be seeing another TV legend giving us viewers another reason to be reminded of classic television and perhaps relive some golden memories once again.
