Bill Cosby has a new project up his sleeves for all you TV fans that miss your weekly dose of Cliff, Clair and the entire Huxtable gang.
While it’s not exactly the “Cosby Show,” the iconic entertainer plans to make a comeback on NBC, three decades later, with a new multi-generational family sitcom. According to Deadline, Cosby will star in the half-hour comedy and reunite with “Cosby Show” producer Tom Werner.
“The new comedy will be built around Cosby, who will play the patriarch of a multi-generational family and, like the comedian’s previous family sitcoms – “Cosby Show” and “Cosby” on CBS — “The Cosby Show” will channel his take on marriage and parenting,” Deadline reports. “Cosby and Werner are meeting with writers on the project, which has been put on off-season development track.”
Cosby shared details about the upcoming show with Yahoo TV in November. “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,” he said. “So I hope to get that opportunity, and I will deliver the best of Cosby.”
And to add icing on the cake, the 76-year-old star is also working to reboot his popular 1970’s animated series “Fat Albert And The Cosby Kids.”
