When it comes to classic Black television, shows like Good Times and The Jeffersons are staples.
And although these shows never left (you know where to find them😉) if they came back—with a refreshed cast and modern setting– would they have the same appeal?
According to sources, Sony and writer/producer Norman Lear are planning to bring these classic shows back with a new twist.
“There is some talk about doing some of the original shows, redoing them with today’s stars,” Lear told Variety. “There is a possibility that we’ll do All in the Family, Maude, The Jeffersons, and Good Times.”
Norman Lear, who is the original creator of these shows is planning to bring them back in the form of a mini-series–including about six episodes per season using original scripts.
