Hollywood loves to just take a good idea and beat it into the ground, am I right? And since a handful of shows that were rebooted are doing even mildly well (Will & Grace, Roseanne), it seems only logical that all shows must come back now. ALL!!
So lets take a look at the shows being reported as on the reboot table.
The Hollywood Reporter confirmed that “Designing Women” was coming back for more after its initial run from 1986 to 1993. The original starred Dixie Carter, Delta Burke, Annie Potts, Jean Smart and Meshach Taylor.
Leonardo DiCaprio must have been a big Tootie fan. Page Six reported that his production company is in early stages of rebooting “The Facts of Life.”
Warner Bros. Television has taken on “Alf” as their latest reboot, according to Variety. The show will reportedly focus on Alf as he emerges from captivity in Area 51.
Deadline reported that Kelsey Grammer is in talks to reboot “Frasier.” Rumors have been going around that the new iteration would take place in a new city with a new cast aside from Grammer.
Melissa Joan Hart is re-booting her Nickelodeon show “Clarissa Expains It All.” She’ll star as the mom of a new TV family, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The “Party of Five” team has joined the reboot party. Coming back with a new cast and premise, Deadline reports that the show will, “follow the five Buendias children as they navigate daily life struggles to survive as a family unit after their parents are suddenly deported back to Mexico.”
Deadline reported that Helen Hunt and Paul Reiser inked deals with Sony Pictures TV to reboot “Mad About You”, but Paul Resier said the production hit dooming snags. Resier says he is still optimistic telling Page Six, “Hopefully we will get to do it.”
