I heard about this on the radio today, this was the best (for C.O.) write up I could find on short notice.
Alas,Sony Pictures and (White) producer Scott Rudin are reportedly at work on a film adaptation, along with (White) writer Phil Johnston.the potential to piss off lots and lots of Black people,"“Working on Good Times was real hard. All the White writers wanted to do stereotypes and I refused. Every week we’d argue and fight. They would ignore what I suggested and take all that, ‘Yassuh Boss,’ stuff to the cast and John Amos and Ester Rolle would have a fit.”Yet, a Good Times reboot is what a major Hollywood studio wants to release. Are our contemporary stories not worth telling? Or is just easier to be lazy and continue rehashing the same ideas from yesterdecade?
