If someone were to list quintessential sitcoms of the 1990s, they’d have to put ABC’s Sister, Sister on the list. The comedy about twins separated at birth who meet just in time for their awkward teenage years, was on air for six seasons and introduced the world to Tia and Tamera Mowry— and reintroduced 80’s babies to the comedic genius of Jackée Harry and Tim Reid.
Seventeen years after the show ended, Tia Mowry-Hardrict is now opening up about the very real possibility of a reboot.
“We’re looking, right now, for a producer and a writer, someone who can kind of be a leader of the pack in regards to running the show,” she told Nylon. “I thought people would kind of be jumping on it, but it’s a lot harder than my sister and I thought it would be. Everything in my career has always been a challenge.”
Apparently the process of finding a good team to get behind the project has taken more time than expected, but they’re still working on it.
“It’s not dead in any kind of way,” she said. “We’re moving forward, we’re taking those strides. They’re slow strides, but we’re pushing as hard as we can to make people happy and make our fans happy.”
In the meantime, the 38-year-old sisters are keeping busy. Mowry-Hardrict is raising her 5-year-old son, enjoying her cooking show and starring in more dramatic roles. And her sister, Mowry-Housley is raising her two kids while appearing weekdays on The Real.
