The channel’s reboot will follow the lives and misadventures of a pair of working-class couples in Brooklyn with a modern twist that definitely didn’t happen on the original series.
CBS is developing a reboot of the classic sitcom “The Honeymooners”. The new iteration focuses on two couples, best friends and neighbors like the original, who contend with a new dynamic when one couple remarries after divorcing four years earlier.
The original series starred Jackie Gleason as Ralph Kramden, Audrey Meadows as Alice, Art Carney as Ed and Joyce Randolph as Trixie. It was based on a recurring 1950s sketch that originally aired from 1955-1956 on the DuMont network’s “Cavalcade of Stars” and eventually on CBS’ “The Jackie Gleason Show”.
The upcoming multi-camera comedy will be written and executive produced by Bob Kushell, who recently developed ABC’s “The Muppets” reboot. He is joined by Sarah Timberman and Carl Beverly alongside Eric and Kim Tannenbaum, who also executive produce another CBS reboot of comedy classic “The Odd Couple“.
The CBS project marks the latest remake of “The Honeymooners”. A feature film version of the comedy was released in 2005 to poor reviews and disappointing box office performance.
