According to Deadline Hollywood, CBS has ordered a script for a Brady Bunch remake, a multi-camera television comedy series that is co-developed and executive produced by Vince Vaughn and written by Mike Mariano. Through Vaughn’s Wild West Picture Show Productions, Sherwood Schwartz’s son, Lloyd Schwartz, will executive produce the project along with Victoria Vaughn and Peter Billingsley.
In the new Brady Bunch…a divorced Bobby Brady, with children of his own, is remarried to a woman who also has kids, and together they also share a child. In addition, their ex-spouses are still part of their lives. The changes in the premiere reflect the evolution of family dynamics over the past four decades. Back in 1969, Schwartz wanted Carol to be a divorcée but the network refused, so the end of her first marriage was never addressed.
