“The Brady Bunch” Reboot in the Works (You Can Blame Vince Vaughn)
Avert your eyes: Hollywood is once again taking a machete to your childhood memories with news that Vince Vaughn is developing a reboot of The Brady Bunch for CBS.
Is nothing sacred?!
The original series, which ran from 1969 to 1974, saw Mike Brady, a widowed architect with three sons — Greg, Peter and Bobby — marry Carol Martin, a single mother with three daughters — Marcia, Jan and Cindy.
This revamped Brady Bunch will reportedly follow a now-divorced Bobby Brady, who, with children of his own, remarries a woman who has kids. In a twist on the Brady Bunch formula, the pair will also have a child together.
CBS TV Studios has ordered a script for the proposed series, but that doesn’t mean the reboot will see the light of day. CBS considered a Wild Wild West reboot in 2010 and a remake of Bewitched the following year. Both failed to make it to air.
