New Bill Cosby sitcom could debut next summer

ASSOCIATED PRESS

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. — Bill Cosby could be returning to the network with a new comedy as soon as next summer.

The series, described as a "classic, extended-family sitcom" with Cosby as the patriarch, is currently in the writing stage, NBC executives said this week. It was first announced in January.

Cosby, 77, has a long history with NBC, including his seminal The Cosby Show, which became a smash hit 30 years ago and helped rescue a network then at the bottom of the ratings. It ran for eight seasons.
