*Bill Cosby may be returning to NBC.
The comedy legend is eying a multigenerational comedy that he would topline, according to Deadline.com.
The report said Cosby, 76, was developing a show for the network that he would star in. One of his partners on “The Cosby Show” — Tom Werner, now chairman of the Boston Red Sox — would reportedly join the series in a production capacity. NBC said the show had not yet received a series or pilot order.
While promoting his comedy special on “Comedy Central” last year, Cosby told Yahoo TV that viewers “would like to see a married couple that acts like they love each other [and] children who respect the parenting, and the comedy of people who make mistakes. Warmth and forgiveness. So I hope to get that opportunity.”
No other details, nor an arrival date, were announced. But the term “multigenerational” may be the giveaway here, indicating that Cos will play a grandfather figure.
