Pretty soon we’ll see if “In Living Color” is one of those classic shows that should have been left in the ’90s or if it’s sketch comedy routine is one of those things that can stand the test of time.
A few months back we found out Keenen Ivory Wayans is hosting and executive producing a reboot of the show and part of the revamped cast has been announced. So far, the show will star Kali Hawk, Jennifer Bartels, Jermaine Fowler and Lil Rel Howery. I don’t know any of these actors/comedians by name but when I think about the original “In Living Color” cast, the show was what gave most of those actors their first big Hollywood break—even the fly girls. Speaking of, I wonder if they’ll be reviving that aspect of the show too?
Originally, the new version of the show was supposed to debut with two half-hour episodes during Fox’s 25th anniversary special on April 22, but Shadow and Act reports that filming won’t even begin until April now so it looks like that date is getting pushed back. Hopefully it’s worth the wait.
Are you familiar with any of these actors? What do you think about the show reboot?
