According to reports, it was Wayans' idea to revive the show, and the plan was for Fox to present two In Living Color half-hour specials to air as part of the network’s 25th anniversary celebration on April 22, with a series option behind them. If the two specials are a ratings success, then the new In Living Color will be picked up as a series next season.
But it looks like this will happen at a later date, since shooting WAS scheduled to begin in April.
How about the cast?
Kali Hawk, Jennifer Bartels, Jermaine Fowler, Lilrel Howery, Ayana Hampton, Cyrah Hawkins and a few others, have all signed on to be part of the new generation/revamped cast of In Living Color.
Even Keenen himself is listed as an on-screen participant.
But it looks like it'l be a mixed cast - so don't expect a predominantly black cast as was the case with the original In Living Color.
And what about the Fly Girls? There they are in the above photo: Whitney Wiley, Tera Perez, Christina Chandler, Katee Shean, and Lisa Rosenthal.
Which of these 5 young ladies might use the show as a catapult to even greater success a la J-Lo?
In the video below from earlier this year, Keenen talks about the new show - specifically, his search for the new group of Fly Girls; we also see him at a Fly Girls audition.
