First revealed publicly last October, the Fox Network is bringing the Wayans’ In Living Color back to TV as a mid-season replacement, with the original star and creator of the show, Keenen Ivory Wayans, on board as host and executive producer.
According to reports it was Wayans’ idea to revive the show, and the plan was for Fox to present two In Living Color half-hour specials to air as part of the network’s 25th anniversary celebration on April 22, with a series option behind them. If the two specials are a ratings success, then the new In Living Color will be picked up as a series next season.
But it looks like this will happen at a later date, since shooting is scheduled to begin in April.
How about the cast?
Announced this afternoon, Kali Hawk, Jennifer Bartels, Jermaine Fowler and Lilrel Howery have all signed on to be part of the new generation/revamped cast of In Living Color.
The only name I’m familiar with is Kali Hawk’s (Although sketch comedy isn’t something I knew she did). But how about you?
It looks like 2 men and 2 women so far; both men are black; one of the women is white. There may be more coming…
