Vince Vaughn developing ‘The Brady Bunch’ remake for CBS
Then there’s this, CBS has a remake of The Brady Bunch currently in the works from executive producer Vince Vaughn.
“America’s most famous blended TV family is eying a comeback. CBS is developing a new take on the cult comedy The Brady Bunch, co-developed and executive produced by Vince Vaughn. The multi-camera comedy project, which has received a script order, will be produced by CBS TV Studios.
On the new next-generation Brady Bunch, written by Mike Mariano (Raising Hope, My Name Is Earl), a divorced Bobby Brady, with children of his own, is remarried to a woman who also has kids, and together they also share a child. In addition, their ex-spouses are still part of their lives. The new setup reflects the evolution of family dynamics over the past four decades. Back in 1969, Schwartz wanted Carol to be a divorcée but the network refused, so the end of her first marriage was never addressed. “
Excellent, CBS adds to its pleasantly innocuous stream of interchangeable shows, broad multi-camera sitcoms, and other reboots like Hawaii Five-0.
