Bill Cosby is reportedly working on a new family comedy sitcom, just as other iconic comedians like Michael J. Fox and Robin Williams have successfully gave viewers a nostalgic feeling with their new TV shows.
The comedian told Yahoo TV that he’s re-teamed with one of The Cosby Show producers Tom Werner to develop a family comedy that “would [satisfy] the people who have come to me in public places and said, ‘Can’t you put something on that I can watch?’”
Cosby continued: “I want to be able to deliver a wonderful show to [a] network. 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. 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.”
Bill Cosby isn’t just busy with making a comeback on primetime TV, he’s also working on a reboot of his animated series “Fat Albert and the Cosby Kids with writer and producer Tom Straw developing the project. He revealed: “It’s got to be animated, every bit of it. Maybe except for yours truly saying, ‘I told you this is going to be funny, and if you pay attention, you just might learn something.’”
