‘Murphy Brown’ Headed Back To Television?!?!?

by Gumbercules9000 on Apr 30th, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here…

‘Murphy Brown’ creator, Diane English, is currently talking with CBS and Warner Bros. about bringing Candice Bergen back to reprise her role as Murphy Brown.  This would coincide with the upcoming presidential election.  Back in 2008, English tried to revive the character for the McCain/Obama campaign, but things fell through.

Now, it looks like it’s going to actually happen.  There would be several episodes that would act as political commentary specials with Bergen back in character as Murphy Brown according to TV Guide.  English said, “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.

 

How awesome would this be?  I love this idea and I hope it goes through.  Bergen did a phenomenal job as Shirley Schmidt on ABC’s ‘Boston Legal’ opposite James Spader and William Shatner.  She brought that show to new heights.  And who knows…with the resurrection of Murphy Brown, maybe this will spawn a new series for her.

 

Your thoughts?

Movie Quotes

Warr. Off. Paul Brenner:
[Brenner is discussing Elisabeth's medical records that were left in his car anonymously] Now did he instruct you to give me the medical records?
Capt. Goodson:
Well, not in so many words... but I think I knew his wishes. You know, anything that might help Elisabeth. I'm sure you know how much he loved her.
Warr. Off. Paul Brenner:
Not as much as he loved you.
Capt. Goodson:
[smiling] What do you mean?
Warr. Off. Paul Brenner:
I don't know. It's just something about the surprise way you came in that night, the extra care he had in making dinner.
Capt. Goodson:
What do you plan on doing about it?
Warr. Off. Paul Brenner:
Not a thing... other than to tell you I'm sorry about Moore and to ask you for your help. Here... sit down.
[both take a seat on a park bench]
Capt. Goodson:
What exactly do you need to know?
Warr. Off. Paul Brenner:
I want to know about the recreation of the original rape.
Capt. Goodson:
I suppose that's what it was.
Warr. Off. Paul Brenner:
Was it Moore's idea to do this, to kind of cleanse her of her past?
Capt. Goodson:
Oh no... Jesus, no. She thought it up. He couldn't talk her out of it.
Warr. Off. Paul Brenner:
So he felt so bad that he killed himself?
Capt. Goodson:
Look, you and I both know that's not how this happened. And that's where they screwed up, whoever did this. Because they didn't know about Bob and me. Bob could no sooner have killed himself than I could pull a chicken out of my ear. But these nefarious types, they don't get that... you know, they don't understand that... affairs of the heart. Way beyond them.
