NEWS - Tutti a casa! Sony produrrà i reboot dei cult di Norman Lear "I Jefferson", "Arcibaldo", "Maude" e "Good Times" 

News tratta da "Variety"


Sony Pictures Television is in 
very early stages of rebooting 
several classic sitcoms from TV
legend Norman Lear as 
miniseries — including 
All in the Family,” “The 
Jeffersons,” and “Good Times
Variety has learned 
exclusively. The idea currently
being discussed by Lear and 
Sony executives would be to
have new actors recreate
classic episodes of the shows,
working from the original scripts, and package them as short,
six-episode anthologies.
The scripts would be
treated similar to plays
being mounted in new productions.
“There is some talk about doing some of the
original shows, redoing them with today’s stars,”
Lear told Variety. “There is a possibility that
we’ll do ‘All in the Family,’ ‘Maude,’
The Jeffersons,’ “Good Times.'”
Discussions about remaking more of Lear’s
catalogue come as Sony gears up for the premiere of the new
One Day at a Time,” which re-imagines Lear’s ’80s sitcom
about a single mother raising two children. The new series,
which premieres on Netflix Jan. 6, focuses on a Latino family with
a female Army veteran at its center. Lear serves as executive
producer on the new “One Day at a Time,” 
with original scripts coming from the show’s writing staff and 
showrunners Gloria Calderon-Kellett and Mike Royce, with 
contributions from Lear.

Sony has been in discussions with Lear about the miniseries-reboot 
concept since before development began on “One Day at a Time.” 
That series was developed specifically for Netflix, and was never 
shopped to other buyers. No network or streaming service is yet 
attached to the miniseries projects.
The miniseries project is a separate idea from the possible 
“All in the Family” reboot that Lear discussed two years ago at a 
Paley Center event, which would have seen the show revived with 
new characters, possibly Latino. That idea was set aside in favor 
of the new “One Day at a Time.”

“We’re exploring it,” Glenn Adilman, executive vice president 
of comedy development for Sony toldVariety. “It’s sort of tricky to
figure out what the business of that is and what that would be and 
how it would work. But its something we’re trying to figure out.”
Adilman added, “It’s tricky for a lot of reasons, and it’s something 
we’re exploring.”
Sony controls most of Lear’s TV library through its 1985 
acquisition of the producer’s Embassy Communications.
