stevetherobot: Devolving_Spud: theflatline: I am currently writing a remake of Sanford and Son.

It will still Nathan Lane as Fred Sanford and his erstwhile son Lamont, will be played by none other than Michael Cera, and instead of a dump, they are going to have an antique consignment shop, and it will be set in Orange country.

Also on the board is Good Times with a cast whiter than Eight is Enough.  I am thinking Octomom and all of her brood with John Stamos as the dad.

Any ideas for The Cosby Show and What's Happening?

As somebody said above "The point is, if we're remaking something, there's a 90% chance that the focus characters were white and male, not because there's anything inherent in the role which requires it, but because historically that was the western default. " With the Cosby Show, the role required the characters be black because Cosby wanted to show successful African-Americans in a stable family as a counterpoint to stereotypes of blacks as poor and from broken homes.

Shouldn't that be on the SyFy channel then?!?!?

That's not always a bad thing...

If there was a new show called Ironside featuring Michael Ironside being a badass, I would watch every week.
