Growing up in the 90’s we were flooded with 1980’s sitcom reruns on television. Being so, The Cosby Show, with its feel good, clean humored, yet somehow still funny writing and delivery, was no stranger to our tv.
Deadline.com is reporting that Bill Cosby has signed a deal with NBC to developed a new comedy show for the network, that he would star in. Also on board is one of the original ‘Cosby Show’ producers. The show is planned to be about a multigenerational upper middle class family and their struggles living life.
While this all kind of a rehash of the original series, I think that a sitcom that pits Cosby’s old school mentality against today’s issues has some potential. Hopefully that potential can be realized.
