We can’t say we saw this coming. TV Guide‘s William Keck reports that the hit 1990′s comedy “Murphy Brown” may return from the grave. Specifically, creator Diane English says that The Eye may order a handful of “Murphy Brown” specials in advance of the upcoming election.
“I’d love to have the show back on during this election year,” Diane told me at the TV Land Awards, where the series received the Impact Award. “We’re having a little conversation with CBS about a few episodes, and
I think it’s possible. Candice knows about it, and we’re going to talk to her more in July once she wraps her Broadway play ['The Best Man.']“
“Murphy Brown” followed the exploits of an investigative journalist of the same name, played by Candice Bergen, who worked for a fictional CBS News program called “FYI.” The series ran for a decade, from 1988-1998, and was one of the most popular sitcoms of the 1990′s.
