CBS is developing a new version of classic sitcom “The Brady Bunch” which will be co-developed and executive produced by Vince Vaughn. The multi-camera comedy series has scored a script order which Mike Mariano (“Raising Hope,” “My Name Is Earl”) is penning says Deadline.
The show is not so much a remake or reboot as it is a sequel. In this version the youngest of the original Brady kids, Bobby Brady, is now a grown up divorcee with kids of his own. He then remarries a woman who also has her own kids.
They also have a child together, while their ex-spouses are still part of their lives – the intention being to “reflect the evolution of family dynamics” in the interim since the original.
Mariano, Vaughn, Lloyd Schwartz, Victoria Vaughn and Peter Billingsley will all executive produce. CBS TV Studios, who produce “Hawaii Five-0” for the network, will also produce this.
