A popular TV comedy that had a long run in the late 1980s and 1990s may be getting a spinoff. E! Online reports that Sony Pictures Television is taking out a pitch based on “Married … With Children.”
The original series aired for 11 seasons on Fox, from 1987-1997.
The spinoff would be based on David Faustino’s character, Bud Bundy, the family’s son. Pitch meetings are just starting, and there’s no network deal in place.
It’s also not clear which actors from the original show might appear in the spinoff, the story adds. Major cast members Ed O’Neill, Christina Applegate and Katey Sagal have all gone on to successful post-“Married … With Children” careers, including regular series roles on “Modern Family” for O’Neill and on “Sons of Anarchy” for Sagal.
