IN LIVING COLOR Returning to Fox; Keenen Ivory Wayans Will Produce

     October 29, 2011

The classic sketch comedy series In Living Color is getting a reboot. The series, which ran from 1990 to 1994 on Fox and featured fresh-faced talent like Jim Carrey, Jamie Foxx, and David Alan Grier, is returning once again to Fox. THR reports that Keenan Ivory Wayans, who created the series, will produce the rebooted version. Wayans is set to make two half-hour specials that will air this spring, giving the network the chance of picking the show up to series next fall or mid-season.

The new In Living Color will be a contemporary version of its predecessor, with new young talent and musical guests. The original series was pretty groundbreaking stuff, and fell victim to increased censorship from the network as the sketches got more and more “controversial.” Hopefully Wayans can bring rope some of the original show’s actors for guest appearances. Hit the jump to see some of In Living Color’s more famous characters.
