All in the Family and The Jeffersons Coming Back to TV
How cool is this? All in the Family and The Jeffersons are coming back to TV, live and for one night only.
According to the Associated Press, Woody Harrelson, Marisa Tomei, Jamie Foxx and Wanda Sykes will star in re-creations of episodes from the influential sitcoms from the 1970's.
Norman Lear, who created All in the Family and The Jeffersons, and Jimmy Kimmel are hosting the ABC prime time special airing next month.
Harrelson and Tomei will play Archie and Edith Bunker, with Foxx and Sykes as George and Louise Jefferson.
All in the family was a TV groundbreaker when it debuted in 1971, using comedy as a vehicle to explore racism, women's rights and other hot button issues.
The Jeffersons, about a successful black family in a largely white world, featured the TV rarity of an interracial couple.
