‘Punky Brewster’ Reboot Starring Soleil Moon Frye In Works At UCP

Quote:
EXCLUSIVE: Another classic sitcom is eying a return with its original star. UCP is developing Punky Brewster, a sequel to the 1984 NBC sitcom, with Soleil Moon Frye set to reprise her role as the titular character that became a pop culture icon of the 1980s.

The original multi-camera series, created by David W. Duclon, centered on Punky (Frye), a bright young girl raised by a foster dad (George Gaynes). In the multi-camera/hybrid reboot, Punky (Frye) is now a single mother of three trying to get her life back on track when she meets a young girl who reminds her a lot of her younger self.

When did Punky Brewster become a "classic sitcom?"

Has "classic" simply become a synomym for "old?"

Classic means any sitcom that (a) some washed up hasbeen is willing to recreate his or her role because their career is in the toilet, and (b) some studio is dumb enough to think there's a market for it.

Iconic to the generation that grew up in the 80's (Like me, though I never cared for it). Right up there with KITT, Max Headroom and Mr. T on the list of 80's TV icons few others care about.

Classic is definitely not the right word...
