- To compete with the 21st-century streaming wars, CBS is rebooting a 67-year-old sitcom.
- CBS Studios is developing a new version of the iconic working-class comedy The Honeymooners. This time around, it'll be a "bold, female-driven" story from executive producer Damon Wayans Jr. (New Girl) and showrunner Lindsey Shockley (Black-ish).
- The story is described as centered on a “new wife, Ruth, and her husband, Alex, who are determined to have a marriage where they are true equals in every way. But what happens when a marriage has two heads of the household? Are they co-heads? Or no head at all?”
- The Honeymooners began as a comedy sketch on star Jackie Gleason’s variety show and aired on CBS for one season from 1955-56.
