CBS has ordered scripts for a reboot of the classic 70′s TV series The Brady Bunch, which will be produced by Wedding Crashers star Vince Vaughn.
The Wrap is reporting the reboot will revolve around divorced dad Bobby Brady, the youngest son on the original series, who has remarried a woman with children of her own. The couple will also have a child together. Throw in the ex-spouses and CBS thinks they have created a more modern Brady family.
Along with Vaughn, he project is being executive-produced by Lloyd Schwartz, son of “Brady Bunch” creator Sherwood Schwartz, as well as his Wild West Picture Show Productions partners Victoria Vaughn (Vince’s sister) and Peter Billingsley, and “My Name Is Earl” and “Raising Hope” writer/producer Mike Mariano, who’s writing the project.
The original Brady Bunch, which followed Mike and Carol Brady and their collective family, ran from 1969 to 1974. The series was followed by a series of movies, starring Gary Cole and Shelley Long, that brought a contemporized, ironic flair to the Brady story.
