Candice Bergen to Return to TV in ABC's Cancer Comedy 'Pearl'

Candice Bergen is the latest ’90s TV icon making a comeback. 

The "Murphy Brown" star will play the titular character in the ABC comedy "Pearl," about a matriarch who decides to take control of every aspect of her family’s lives when she discovers she has terminal cancer. 

The series will mark Bergen’s first regular small-screen role since ABC’s "Boston Legal," which ran from 2005 to 2008. 

The actress has lately made the news with the release of her memoir last year.
