Fox To Reboot ‘In Living Color’ With Keenan Ivory Wayans
 

 

EXCLUSIVE: Fox is bringing back its groundbreaking 1990s sketch comedy series In Living Color with the series’ creator and star, Keenan Ivory Wayans, on board as host and executive producer. Fox has ordered two In Living Color half-hour specials to air as part of the network’s 25th anniversary celebration in midseason with a series option behind them, meaning that in success, the reboot will join Fox’s schedule as a regular series next season. I hear it was Wayans’ idea to revive the popular sketch comedy series with a new cast. The new In Living Color will be produced by his production company Ivory Way Prods. in a.ssociation with 20th Century Fox TV’s Fox 21.

Like the remake, the original In Living Color, which was produced by Ivory Way Prods. and 20th TV, also launched in midseason, premiering on April 15, 1990. It broke stereotypes by employing a cast of mostly black comedians and introducing hip-hop and dancing to mainstream television. The show helped launch the careers of a slew of comedy actors — its cast included Wayans, his siblings Damon, Shawn, and later Marlon as well as Jim Carrey, Jamie Foxx and David Alan Grier, and of course Jennifer Lopez as one of the fly girls. In Living Color gave its actors freedom to improvise and it skewered everyone, particularly Black America. In probably the most successful programming stunt opposite the Super Bowl ever, a special live edition of In Living Color drew some 25 million viewers during the halftime of the 1992 Super Bowl on CBS. But the show’s fearlessness when it comes to the targets of its jokes and the unapologetic political incorrectness of its skits often ran afoul with Fox’s censors. The frequent clashes contributed to Wayans’ departure from the show after the third season though he remained an executive producer. In Living Color ended its run in May 1994 after 5 seasons. Fox has long been looking to launch a successful new sketch comedy series. Last season, it tried with In The Flow With Affion Crockett, executive produced by In Living Color alum Foxx, which was originally slated for midseason but ultimately aired in the summer to low ratings. At Fox 21, In Living Color joins series Homeland, Breakout Kings and Sons Of Anarchy. Kennen Ivory Wayans is repped by UTA.

I dont think it'll be as funny because a lot of the jokes today are so recycled, and comedians are often handcuffed, plus....

I dont watch TV no more

I've noticed on the internet most things reboot is dreadful news for some of y'all

This could be real good & a lot of new comedians could have a chance to showcase their skills. I'm still waiting for the wayans brothers to return to writing duties for a new Scary Movie. At the same time it's a different era. Back then Keenan had a lottt of free range & he said he was surprised he got away with the sh*t they did.


Let's see what happens.

Fox News & Fox TV network are run by ENTIRELY different divisions who have almost nothing to do with each other except the name "Fox" and that they're owned by News Corp.

This. There's still a place for this sh*t. I'd rather have a new season of the Chappelle Show though.
