‘Brady Bunch’ Reboot In The Works At CBS Behind Vince Vaughn

LOS ANGELES (CBSMiami) – “Marcia, Marcia, Marcia.” Those famous words mouthed by one of the six Brady Bunch kids may be coming back to CBS.

The beloved story, of a man named Brady, is being brought back to TV in a rebooted, updated version of the classic sitcom.

CBS News confirmed the network has committed to a script order for the multi-camera comedy, which will be produced by CBS Television Studios.

The comedy will focus on Bobby Brady, a character from the original show, who is now a divorced dad starting a new family with his second wife with children of her own.

The couple also shares a child, and ex-spouses are still part of their lives.

Mike Mariano (“Raising Hope”) will write and executive produce the new project. Lloyd Schwartz, son of the original “Brady Bunch” creator Sherwood Schwartz, will also serve as an executive producer, alongside Vince Vaughn, Victoria Vaughn (the actor’s sister) and Peter Billingsley.

The original “Brady Bunch,” which ran on ABC from 1969-1974, told the story of Mike Brady (Robert Reed), a widowed architect with three sons who marries Carol (Florence Henderson), who has three daughters. The series has spawned a number of spin-offs, specials and two feature films in the 1990s.

No casting for the contemporary version has been announced.
