Bill Cosby, arguably one of America’s most beloved comedic actors, is returning to television. On Jan. 22, E! Online confirmed Cosby had signed a contract with NBC for a new comedy series.

He will appear as the patriarch of a multigenerational family. At this time, no pilot has been ordered and no writers are currently associated with the show. Producer Tom Werner is Cosby’s partner for the show. Werner and Marcy Carsey produced Cosby’s shows “The Cosby Show” for NBC and “Cosby” for CBS.

“The Cosby Show” ran from 1984 through 1992 and starred Coby as the lovable Heathcliff Huxtable. “Cosby” ran from 1996 through 2000. Both shows featured Phylicia Rashad.

Just before his Comedy Central special “Far From Finished,” Cosby told Yahoo he was considering a fulltime return to television.
