I have said it before and I will say it again…2017 is turning out to be the year of the “remake” and the “reboot”. Summertime has barely rolled in and there have already been several announcements of our beloved television shows and classic movies getting makeovers. The recent show to join the “reboot” era is “Sister, Sister” which starred celebrity twins Tia and Tamera Mowry.
“We’re looking, right now, for a producer and a writer, someone who can kind of be a leader of the pack in regards to running the show,” she says. “I thought people would kind of be jumping on it, but it’s a lot harder than my sister and I thought it would be. Everything in my career has always been a challenge.”
The Reboot Era
Mowry lists Roseanne, Twin Peaks, and Will and Grace, as just a handful of the shows getting the revival treatment. The demand is there, so is the interest amongst the cast; they’re just looking for the proper support. “It’s not dead in any kind of way,” she says. “We’re moving forward, we’re taking those strides. They’re slow strides, but we’re pushing as hard as we can to make people happy and make our fans happy.”
When that happens, we hope that some of the celebrity guests from the ’90s make it a point to stop by again. Mowry says some of her favorite memories from the show were her times on set with late actress Brittany Murphy, Kobe Bryant before he was Kobe Bryant, Gabrielle Union, Christina Milian, and Taraji P. Henson.”
So, what are your thoughts? Are you feeling all these remakes and reboots? Will you be watching the new “Sister, Sister”? What remake or reboot are you most excited to see? Let me know in the comments.
