As first reported on TVGuide.com, MURPHY BROWN creator Diane English is currently in talks with CBS and Warner Bros. about the possibility of producing "political-commentary specials" featuring Candice Bergen in character as 'Murphy Brown', the tough-talking TV journalist from the popular 1990's CBS sitcom.
At the recent TV Land Awards, English told TV Guide, "I'd love to have the show back on during this election year. We're having a little conversation with CBS about a few episodes, and I think it's possible. Candice knows about it, and we're going to talk to her more in July once she wraps her Broadway play ['The Best Man.']" The series received the TV Land 'Impact Award' at this year's ceremonies.
MURPHY BROWN ran on CBS from 1988 to 1998. The show infused hot topic current events and shined a light on real-life career and personal issues. The revolutionary show starred Emmy(R) and Golden Globe(R) Award-winning actress Candice Bergen as title character Murphy Brown, a reporter for successful primetime news show "FYI." With the help of her friends and co-workers - Frank Fontana (Joe Regalbuto), Corky Sherwood (Faith Ford), Jim Dial (Charles Kimbrough) and Miles Silverberg (Grant Shaud) - Murphy was a star journalist who truly had it all, even becoming a single mother later in the series. The show created some of the most memorable episodes with help from guest stars and fellow "TV Land Awards" honorees and presenters Aretha Franklin and Katie Couric.
