Writer Kenya Barris, Creator Of Hit U.s. Sitcom Black-ish, Has Been Tapped To Pen The Script For The Upcoming Film Adaptation Of Tv Series Good Times.
Barris' freshman show about an affluent African-American family debuted to critical acclaim last September (14), and now the screenwriter will take his talents to the big screen for the reboot of the 1970s groundbreaking sitcom, which also featured an African-American family, but in a poor, Chicago, Illinois neighbourhood.
Good Times, a spin-off of Maude, featured John Amos and Esther Rolle as working class parents and co-starred Jimmie Walker and a young Janet Jackson. The series ended its six-season run in 1979.
Hollywood producer Scott Rudin acquired the rights to the show in 2013 and has yet to announce a release date.
