Last week, in the wake of Eddie Huang's complaints that he felt ABC's "Fresh Off the Boat" was distorting and softening his childhood experiences, this column examined how hard it is for any biographical or autobiographical sitcom to be true to the life of its source and still be a crowd-pleasing primetime network entertainment. You'd think, after decades of trying, TV writers and network programming executives would be aware of this.
Nonetheless, according to The Hollywood Reporter, the networks have no fewer than ten such sitcom pilots in production, as the first episodes of potential 2015-16 primetime series. Some are based on the lives of already famous entertainers, some on the self-referential stand-up comedy routines of not-quite-famous comics, and some on memoirsts who've lived interesting lives.
Here's a rundown of these pilots, with a look at who these shows are about, who's starring in them, what the series might be like, »

If you're starting to feel bombarded by the ’90s nostalgia set to invade TV over the next few years, you’re not alone. Already in 2015, reboots have been announced for The X-Files, Full House, The Magic School Bus, The Powerpuff Girls, Coach, and, if Showtime gets its way, a David Lynch–led Twin Peaks. Meanwhile, horror-film franchise Scream will be rebranded as an MTV show. None of this should come as a surprise. BuzzFeed can generate millions of clicks off milliennial-centric recycled topics like “32 Pictures That Will Give You Intense Elementary School Flashbacks,” Tumblr is clogged with '90s nostalgia porn, and fashion staples from that decade are back in style (see: Kylie Jenner’s nude lip-liner). To put it plainly: We’re all suckers for that “warm-and-fuzzy feeling [we get] at the mention of certain titles,” as Vulture’s Josef Adalian described the phenomenon.But what if you get the warm-and-fuzzies »

Former on-screen brothers-in-law Bob Saget and John Stamos have differing levels of confidence over that whole “Full House” reboot actually happening. “I actually do not know,” the man behind T.G.I.F.’s Danny Tanner said on a recent “HuffPost Show,” following an equally non-committal “I’m not sure.” Saget continued his on-camera deflection with a joke: “I actually have a Blackberry as a suppository, so I could be getting the message now.” Watch Saget hem and haw on The HuffPost Show.

Tia Mowry has reunited with former Sister, Sister costar Marques Houston, aka Roger, and it appears that she is not telling him to "go home." He visited her on the set of her Nickelodeon show, Instant Mom, and they proceeded to be really adorable. These pictures will make anyone who watched the show feel warm and fuzzy but also awkwardly old because it premiered over 20 years ago. We have two questions: first off, now that Full House is getting a reboot, can this '90s sitcom please be the next revival? Second, where is Tamera?! »

Color me shocked: the Gremlins remake is gaining momentum once again. In an era where TV shows like Coach and Full House are being given the redo treatment, it’s no surprise that Warner Bros. hasn’t given up on a new adaptation of Joe Dante’s 1984 classic. The most recent iteration of the project had Seth Grahame-Smith (Dark Shadows) producing and bringing an idea to Steven Spielberg and Chris Columbus—who scripted the first film—but he recently said the project “ran out of steam.” Well it looks as though Warner Bros. has found plenty more steam to throw into the property, as Deadline reports that Disturbia screenwriter Carl Ellsworth has been tapped to pen the screenplay for the Gremlins remake, with Columbus and Spielberg producing. Ellsworth’s credits include the remakes The Last House on the Left and Red Dawn, as well as the upcoming Goosebumps, so his »

It’s been a banner spring for fans of long-dead TV shows. In just the past two weeks, there’s been news of two sitcom revivals (Full House, Coach), a drama comeback (The X-Files), a cult-sketch-series reunion (Mr. Show) and a variety series that may be reincarnated as a sitcom (The Muppet Show). These new projects join an already-airing update of The Odd Couple, this fall’s resurrection of Heroes, a planned 2016 return to Twin Peaks, and a slew of old movie titles being transformed into TV shows (Wet Hot American Summer) or pilots (Rush Hour, Problem Child, Minority Report, Uncle Buck). What’s odd about the small screen’s current infatuation with chasing ghosts is that it comes smack in the middle of what’s widely considered a new Golden Age for the medium. We expect TV today not only to be better than it used to be, but »

As Netflix’s streaming service has grown over the years, the company has increasingly branched out into original content. Alongside new shows, Netflix has also brought back series that were cancelled by other channels, such as The Killing and Longmire, and brought back popular shows such as Arrested Development and the series continuation of Wet Hot American Summer. Now the service appears poised to revive another show, as TV Line is reporting that Netflix is in talks with Warner Bros for a Full House revival series.
Titled Fuller House, the series will revolve around DJ and Kimmy, with original series stars Candace Cameron Bure and Andrea Barber set to reprise their respective roles.

Bob Saget and Dave Coulier are also set to reprise their roles in guest appearances. »

Did you hear that? It's the sound of one million Full House fans screaming in a fit of joy. Nothing is definite yet, but there's a good chance that a Full House revival is coming to Netflix. The show, to be titled Fuller House, would star Candace Cameron Bure and Andrea Barber in their roles as D.J. and Kimmy, with John Stamos, Bob Saget and Dave Coulier doing guest appearances as Uncle Jesse, Danny and Joey. In other words, if it happens it's going to be our dream come true. As some of the biggest Full House fans out there (and owners of both the complete DVD set and the very limited edition Full House board game), we've spent a lot of time thinking about what a »

If yesterday’s Full House revival news didn’t solidify this TV season as “The Year of Reboots,” then this announcement certainly will. According to TVLine, along with many other major outlets, ABC is developing a revival of The Muppet Show from Big Bang Theory co-creator Bill Prady, who will co-write the reboot’s pilot and serve as an executive producer on the series if it is ordered. Speaking of said pilot, ABC is planning on shooting a pilot representation later this month. Right now, the series’ working title is Muppets 2015, and per TVLine, this the show’s official logline: “The Muppets excitedly gather at ABC for a meeting about the new Muppet Show. However, the show will not move forward unless Miss Piggy signs on.” So what’s holding Miss Piggy back from a new version of The Muppet Show?
