Bill Cosby, 76, says people come up to him all the time, begging, pleading for him to return to primetime TV.
Cosby says he’s working on it right now, to satisfy “the people who have come to me in public places and said, ‘Can’t you put something on that I can watch?’”
Because what’s out there now, he said, is devoid of warmth, of soul, or love.
“I want to be able to deliver a wonderful show to [a] network,” he said, “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.”
Cosby, known to much of America as Cliff Huxtable, the patriarch to a middle class black family that dominated ratings in the 1990s, says he’s working with an old “Cosby Show’ producer to deliver a family sitcom.
“When you look at TV…There’s nothing much that I see where people are loved,” he said in a recent interview with Parade. “It’s not about the soul, the touch, the feel. It’s gone.”
