Bill Cosby, NBC Creating New Show

Two months after saying he was interested in returning to television, legend Bill Cosby will be starring in a new family comedy on NBC. Cosby will team up with Tom Werner, the producer of The Cosby Show, which went off the air over 20 years ago. While they are still looking for writers to bring onto the show, it will reportedly focus on Cosby as the patriarch of a multi-generational family—similar to his roles on The Cosby Show and CBS’ Cosby. "I want to be able to deliver a wonderful show to [a] network," Cosby said, "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,” Cosby said.
