Comedy icon Bill Cosby, with or without Cliff Huxtable’s famous sweaters, is partnering with NBC on a new family comedy, our sister site Deadline reports.
In the project, Cosby would again head up a multi-generational household, imparting wisdom on things like marriage, family and the pudding pops, see.
Cosby is developing the series with Tom Werner, with whom he (and Marcy Carsey) produced The Cosby Show.
One idea already being bandied about by the Twitterazzi: Simply revisit the Huxtable family all these years later, seeing as many of the “kid” actors are (probably) available. Or would you prefer an “all-new” set-up?
