CBS Looking to Bring Back MURPHY BROWN for Election Season?

     April 30, 2012

It appears the resurrection of TV shows won’t be limited to Fox bringing back animated series like Family Guy or Comedy Central breathing new life into Futurama. At least that will be the case of Murphy Brown creator Diane English has her way as the writer is currently talking with CBS about potentially bringing back the series for just a few episodes during this election year. While at the TV Land Awards, English told TV Guide that she’s been talking to both the network and star Candice Bergen about coming back to TV for some political satire fun. She says, “We’re having a little conversation with CBS about a few episodes, and I think it’s possible. Candice knows about it, and we’re going to talk to her more in July once she wraps her Broadway play [‘The Best Man.’]”  Hit the jump for more.

Honestly, coming back for a few episodes seems like a bit of a gimmick, especially for a series that has been off the air for 14 years. Of course, the series did run for 10 seasons, so there’s likely an audience to take the bait. At the very least, CBS and their older viewer demographic seems like the best network despite being the home of the original series which follows a tough female television journalist and her co-workers and friends. Stay tuned.  Watch a clip from the show below:
