Bill Cosby Plans New Sitcom at NBC


More than 20 years after his groundbreaking series “The Cosby Show” went off the air, Bill Cosby is making plans to return to network television. Cosby will, according to Deadline, headline a new, currently untitled sitcom that will air on NBC.

Details on the new series are few, but it is said to follow a multigenerational family. Cosby is working with Tom Werner to produce. Werner, an executive producer on “The Cosby Show,” also executive produced the pilot for the comedian’s later follow-up series “Cosby.”

The original article also notes that Cosby is working with writer Tom Straw to plan a potential reboot of the animated “Fat Albert and the Cosby Kids,” which would also head to television in the near future.
