One of the most beloved television comedies is making a comeback.
A “Who’s The Boss” sequel is in development at Sony Pictures Television. Tony Danza and Alyssa Milano are on board to reprise their iconic roles as Tony and Samantha Micelli, a father/daughter relationship that families around the world grew up with over the course of an eight-season, 196-episode run on ABC from 1984-1992.The show averaged over 33 million live viewers per episode during its eight-season run on ABC, and went on to be a big hit in U.S. and international syndication, progressive in its depiction of a modern family in the ’80s with a reversal of gender roles and stereotypes. The show was nominated for 10 Emmys and five Golden Globes.
The new show will take place 30 years after the events of the original series, centered around former Major League Baseball player/retired housekeeper Tony Micelli and his relationship with his daughter Samantha Micelli. She is now a single mother, living in the house the original series was set in. In line with Norman Lear’s classic shows, the new comedy will explore generational differences, as well as opposing world views and parenting styles within the dynamic of a modern family in 2020.
Original cast members Judith Light (Angela) and Danny Pintauro (Jonathan) are supportive of the new series and the hope is to find creative ways to work them and their characters into the show.

The deal comes at a time that some of the biggest streaming hits are classic half-hour comedies from past decades, comfort food and a reminder of a simpler time. Series like “Friends,” “The Office” and “Seinfeld” are still huge draws and a redrawn “Fuller House” just completed a successful run on Netflix.
“Who’s the Boss” is part of Norman Lear’s extensive library under his Embassy Communications banner that was sold to The Coca Cola Company in 1985 and is now owned by Sony Pictures Television.
The sequel will be executive produced by Lear, his producing partner Brent Miller of ACT III Productions and Dan Farah of Farah Films, who brought the updated take to Sony with Danza and Milano attached. Danza and Milano will also serve as Executive Producers.
The project will eventually be shopped to buyers with the opportunity to also license the 196 episodes of the original series.Filed under alyssa milano , sony pictures , tony danza , tv reboots , 8/4/20

Florida judge rules police can keep guns from former Trump campaign boss Brad Parscale

A Florida judge has ordered that police can keep nearly a dozen guns from Brad Parscale, the former head of President Donald Trump's campaign, who was taken into custody Sunday after an armed standoff at his home.
Parscale, 44, poses "significant danger of causing personal injury to themselves or others in the near future," cops had reportedly said in a request for the order, which allows them to keep Parscale's guns for at least two weeks.
A Broward County judge granted the request by police and it has been served on Parscale, a police spokeswoman told CNBC on Thursday.
Police have the option of asking a judge to extend the order by up to one year.
The order comes a day after Parscale said he was resigning from Trump's campaign, where he most recently was serving as a senior advisor for digital and data.
Cops seized 11 guns from Parscale's home after Sunday's standoff, which ended when SWAT officers dramatically tackled the shirtless and shoeless digital guru outside his Fort Lauderdale home.
He was taken to a hospital that same day under a state mental health law that allows for involuntary admittance to a health-care facility.
Police had gone to the house following a 911 call reporting that Parscale had loaded a round of ammunition in front of his wife, Candice Parscale, after a verbal altercation inside.

Candice told cops that her husband had been "depressed and suicidal recently."
Candice said "this has led him to consume alcohol a lot more frequently and make suicidal statements," according to an officer who spoke with her.
Brad Parscale appeared drunk during the incident, and was at some points holding a can of beer as cops waited outside.
He initially refused to come out of the house, but later did so of his own volition, and soon after was tackled and handcuffed, while he repeatedly said, "I didn't do anything!"VIDEO1:2801:28Bodycam video shows police officers tackling former Trump campaign chief Brad ParscaleNews Videos
Parscale was removed as the head of Trump's campaign in July and replaced by Bill Stepien after a campaign rally in Oklahoma failed to attract the massive crowd that Parscale had predicted.
Parscale said in a statement Wednesday night, "I am stepping away from my company and any role in the campaign for the immediate future to focus on my family and get help dealing with the overwhelming stress."
Candice Parscale, in a statement issued in her own name, said, "The statements I made on Sunday have been misconstrued, let it be clear my husband was not violent towards me that day or any day prior."
The couple in a joint statement said, "We extend our thanks for everyone's thoughts and support during this difficult time for our family and we eagerly await all of the facts emerging."
The standoff at the couple's house occurred just two days before Trump faced Democratic nominee Joe Biden in the first presidential debate of the 2020 election.
