Bill Cosby Developing New Family Comedy Series

BILLCOSBY2

Bill Cosby is currently working on a new family-oriented television series.

The funnyman told Yahoo TV that he has teamed up with Cosby Show producer Tom Werner to created a family comedy that “would [satisfy] the people who have come to me in public places and said, ‘Can’t you put something on that I can watch?'”

Cosby made it clear that the show would not be a Cosby Show remake, but would focus on older kids and their relationships with their parents.

“I want to be able to deliver a wonderful show to [a] network,” said Cosby. “Because there is a viewership out there that wants to see comedy, and warmth, and love, and surprise, and cleverness, without going into the party attitude.

“They would like to see a married couple that acts like they love each other, warts and all, children who respect the parenting, and the comedy of people who make mistakes. Warmth and forgiveness. So I hope to get that opportunity, and I will deliver the best of Cosby, and that will be a series, I assume, that we could get enough people week after week after week to tune in to, to come along with us.”

In other news, Cosby will headline his first TV concert special in 30 years. The special, called Far From Finished airs  on Comedy Central on Nov 23.

Grey’s Anatomy won’t be the same after next season.   Patrick Dempsey, who plays McDreamy on the ABC series, confirmed that his future on the show after the 2011-2012 season wraps is uncertain.

“It [season 8] will be my last one,” said Dempsey in the new issue of Patrick was quoted as saying in the new issue of Italian Vanity Fair.

Patrick doesn’t know about the other actors on the show, “but for me, it’s over,” he added.

Dempsey did admit that the thought of  leaving the hit series was “bittersweet,” since it has been part of his life.

On Monday, various stories of  Patrick’s departure circulated the web, but his rep tells a different story.
“He was referring to the fact that his contract is up at the end of next season and we have no idea what the future holds,” the rep said in a statement to Access Hollywood.

Creator Shonda Rhimes has not confirmed or denied any departures, but she did tell TV Line that the contracts for a few of the original cast members will be up after this coming season.
“It might be the last hurrah for a lot of them; you never know,” she said. “I really don’t know and I don’t presume to know. Everybody has an individual choice to make and I get that… All the originals are in play.”
It does appear, however, that Patrick may officially be done with at least one business venture.

If you’re going through McDreamy withdrawals, you can catch him in the new Transformers movie, Transformers: Dark of the Moon, which hits  on June 29.
