This could be really interesting, or a FABULOUS DISASTER. ABC is staging LIVE remakes of episodes of"All in the Family"and"The Jeffersons". The show will air on May 22nd. It'll be 90 minutes long, and hosted by Jimmy Kimmel and Norman Lear, who created both shows. And the cast that's been announced so far is phenomenal:
Woody Harrelson and Marisa Tomei will play Archie and Edith Bunker, and Ellie Kemper will play their daughter Gloria.
Jamie Foxx and Wanda Sykeswill play George and "Weezie" Jefferson. Justina Machado from the "One Day at a Time" reboot and "Jane the Virgin" will play their maid, Florence.
And Will Ferrell will play their white neighbor Tom Willis.
The rest of the cast will be announced later.
