Bill Cosby and one of The Cosby Show producers, Tom Werner, are teaming up in an attempt to stun prime time TV with their latest project. Cosby spoke to Yahoo TV about the upcoming family comedy, saying he wanted to satisfy the people who had approached him in public while going on to say: “Can’t you put something on that I can watch?'”
Cosby says that the new series will feature older children than The Cosby Show, and will focus on their relationships with their parents and each other.
Bill Cosby said about the new show: “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.”
He went on to speak about the type of comedy he is trying to achieve in the series via the family dynamic:
“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,” Cosby said.
Everyone’s favorite sitcom dad went on to speak about how he and his team just want “one shot” at success: “I want some network to say to us, ‘All right, we’re going to give you the money to do one show,’ just to lay it out… I just want one shot, because I know that what I am envisioning… they’ve never seen anything like this on TV. The laughter, the stories,” Bill Cosby said.
