Further proof that Vince Vaughn is as dumb as he looks (and that CBS development execs are even dumber):
CBS Developing ‘Brady Bunch’ Reboot With Vince Vaughn – by Lesley Goldberg
The network has given a script commitment to a reboot of The Brady Bunch from executive producer Vince Vaughn and CBS Television Studios, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.
The multicamera comedy about the famed TV family would revolve around the youngest of Mike Brady’s boys, Bobby Brady, as a divorced dad who remarries and starts a new family.
Raising Hope‘s Mike Mariano will pen the project and executive produce alongside Lloyd Schwartz, son of the late Sherwood Schwartz, who created the original ABC sitcom that ran from 1969-74. Vaughn, Victoria Vaughn and Peter Billingsleywill also exec produce through the actor’s Wild West Picture Show Productions shingle.
The good news: The 2 writers, Mike Mariano and Lloyd Schwartz are right out there above the fold.
The terrible news: The concept.
Besides, I’ve been crushing on Florence Henderson since I saw my first BRADY BUNCH rerun. Making this just plain painful. Doesn’t anybody know how to do television right anymore? Anybody who’s working in it, I mean.
