Bill Cosby Returns to Primetime

One of the most lovable and funny TV fathers is returning to primetime!  Bill Cosby is set to star in a new comedy airing on NBC where he will play the head of a ‘multigenerational’ household.  The show is expected to be a half-hour and take on love, marriage, and parenting. 

Cosby and the series producers are currently working with writers to begin developing the TV show, which the Huxtable dad had been considering for some time now.  According to a Fall interview with Yahoo! TV, Cosby stated: “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.” 

Bill Cosby not only played a leading role in the sitcom, he also created and developed the groundbreaking series. 30 years ago, the award winning, The Cosby Show changed the way African Americans families were depicted on television; middle class, educated, and successful. Hopefully, the new show can match the heights of its predecessor.
