The Bradys information

new Brady BunchBrace yourself for more Bradys. America’s favorite sitcom family may be heading back to television in a new weekly TV series. CBS is developing a reboot of The Brady Bunch.

The multi-camera comedy project has received a script order and is being developed and executive produced by Vince Vaughn. Mike Mariano (Raising Hope, My Name Is Earl) is writing the pilot and it revolves around the youngest son of the original brood, Bobby Brady.

Now a divorced father, Bobby will marry a woman who also has children and the couple will have a shared child as well. In addition, the couple’s ex-spouses are still in the picture.

It’s doubtful that the new show will be paying much attention to the original cast continuations. The last time we saw Bobby Brady (in CBS’ failed dramedy The Bradys), he had married his childhood sweetheart and was confined to a wheelchair following a racecar accident.

The changes in the Brady Bunch premise are said to reflect the evolution of family dynamics over the years. According to Deadline, Vaughn came up with the idea and teamed with Mariano. Vaughn, Mariano, Lloyd Schwartz (son of Brady Bunch creator Sherwood Schwartz), Victoria Vaughn (Vince’s sister) and Peter Billingsley will all executive produce.

CBS TV Studios shares the rights to the original series with the Schwartz estate. The Brady Bunch property has certainly done very well for both sides over the years. CBS currently produces two successful remake series — Hawaii Five-0 and 90210 — and another (Beauty and the Beast) is due this fall on The CW.

What do you think? Will you check out a new Brady Bunch TV series? Do you like the sound of the changes to the premise?
