Bill Cosby back on TV?

Bill Cosby

Fans of Bill Cosby will likely be happy to hear that the legendary comic — and longtime TV mainstay — looks to be returning to the television sitcom landscape.

No, he’s not reviving Cliff Huxtable from his old “Cosby Show” heydays, but the entertainer has confirmed to he’s “made a deal” with NBC to develop a half-hour comedy in which he’d star.

“The Cosby Show” ran for 197 episodes from 1984 to 1992 and the actor is again partnering with Tom Werner, whose company with Marcy Carsey produced that groundbreaking and award-winning sitcom.

This time around, plans call for Cosby to play the patriarch of a multi-generational family.

At this point, however, NBC has not moved to the next step — and committed to making a pilot episode.

Cosby is currently on tour with his latest stand-up show, “Far From Finished.” It sure sounds like he is anything but!
