NBC Pulls Plug On Bill Cosby Comedy Project, TV Land Pulls 'Cosby' Reruns

NBC has officially pulled the plug on a comedy project that was to bring the 77-year-old comedian back to primetime.

The network has confirmed it has stopped development on the series, which was slated for next year.

The NBC project was in the very early stages, without a script or commitment to production but Cosby was to return to NBC -- two decades after the end of 'The Cosby Show' -- to play the patriarch of a multi-generational family in the comedy.

Meanwhile, TV Land will no longer air reruns of the classic comedy for an indefinite time.

'The Cosby Show' was to have been part of its Thanksgiving sitcom marathon.
