On Thursday, Queen Latifah was on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen when a caller asked Latifah, “With so many shows getting picked up for reboot, do you think Living Single would make a comeback?”
And just like that, Latifah responded with, “Funny you should ask — we’re actually working on it. It’s not there yet, but like hopefully we can get it happening.”
The Living Single show spent five seasons on the Fox network from August 29, 1993 to January 1, 1998. The show was about a group of friends living in a Brownstone in Brooklyn, New York. The show was one of the most popular black sitcoms which had Latifah as one of the producers towards the end of the show.
During her interview, she did say that for the reboot, Latifah will be producer again.
Andy ask Latifah, “When Friends came out, did you think ‘Wait a minute,we’ve already been doing this?'”
Latifah said, “No, we knew we had already been doing that.”
And she tells us a story “It was one of those things where, there was a guy called Warren Littlefield that used to run NBC and he said they asked him when all the new shows came out, he said they said, ‘If there are any shows you could have which show would it be?’ and he said Living Single. And then he created Friends.”
Andy asked her if it was going to be a possible Netflix show and she said, “It depends, we still figuring all that out.”
She did say that, “Friends was so good, it’s not we hated on them.”
If you remember, the original cast for Living Single consisted of, Kim Coles, Erika Alexander, T.C. Carson, John Heaton, Mel Jackson and Real Housewives of Atlanta alum Kim Fields.
