To quote perhaps the greatest TV theme song of all time: "Keep your head up (what?), keep your head up (that's right!), whenever this life get tough you gotta fight!"
That's from Living Single, and how very true those words feel today. So it makes sense that there might be a reboot of the beloved '90s Fox sitcom about young black girls being fabulous and fierce in New York, which starred U.N.I.T.Y.-er Queen Latifah as magazine publisher Khadijah James.
Ah, the '90s, when TV was somehow blacker than it is today.
A precursor to both Friends and Girlfriends,Living Single has recently found a home in syndication on Logo, bringing it to an entirely new, and gayer, generation. On a recent episode of Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, the openly Emmy-winning actress and producer broke the glorious news that she's working on a reboot :
Still in the early stages of development, Queen says she's trying to wrangle the original cast--which should be easier now that Kim Fields isn't busy boring us on Real Housewives of Atlanta--hopefully meaning we can finally get Erika Alexander that Emmy she shoulda won decades ago.
As Maxine Shaw, attorney at law, when she said, "Ride the Maverick"...she meant it!
2017 is already looking up.
