Before there was Affion Crockett, there was In Living Color. The 90’s half-hour comedy, created by Keenan Ivory Wayans, had the airwaves laughing, with it’s then modern day spoofs. Well now Fox is bringing the comedy back as a part of it’s 25th anniversary. The show launched some of the biggest hollywood careers to date, such as, Jamie Foxx, Jim Carey, and Jennifer Lopez. It was also a place where R/B and Hip Hop stars came to debut their new music. I can’t wait to see what it looks like now.
Well, Fox has announced it will revive In Living Color, the sketch comedy series that became famous in the early 1990s thanks to characters like Damon Wayans’ Homey and Jim Carrey’s Bill. Keenen Ivory Wayans, the original series’ creator, will serve as host and executive producer of the new episodes. And even though the show helped launch the careers of Wayans’ own family as well as those of Jamie Foxx, David Alan Grier and Carrey, the rest of the cast will be new faces.
An updated version of the program will air as two half-hour specials in the spring. No dates have been released
