Comedy legend Bill Cosby is planning a return to television. "The Cosby Show" creator  is working with producer Tom Werner to develop another family comedy. Werner was an executive producer of "The Cosby Show" during its run in the 80s and early 90s.

In true Cosby fashion, the 76-year-old actor said he wants to develop the kind of sitcom that fans of “The Cosby Show” love... a family comedy filled with warmth, love and unforgettable moments.

 The comedian says he also wants to revive his "Fat Albert" animated series, which aired in the 70s and early 80s, but his main focus is on the new sitcom.

Right now, it is still in the early production stages. Cosby has not yet decided which network he will pictch the idea to.
