The upcoming comedy will focus on parenting and marriage, much like The Cosby Show and Cosby.
Guess who’s coming back to primetime?
Thirty years after The Cosby Show debuted on NBC, one of America’s most beloved father figures, Bill Cosby, is slated to return with a new comedy.
As Deadline reports, Cosby inked a deal to create and star in a new half-hour comedy for NBC. The show will focus on Cosby as the patriarch of a “multi-generational” family with a heavy focus on both parenting and marriage.
He’s re-teaming up with Cosby Show producer Tom Werner for the project.
Cosby spoke about the idea to Yahoo back in November saying, “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.”
There’s no word on when the upcoming show could hit the air.
Who’s willing to start the petition to get Phylicia Rashad on board?
