Candice Bergen to play Murphy Brown again on TV

Candice Bergen to play Murphy Brown again on TV

In 2012, English said that she was having conversations with CBS about bringing Murphy Brown back for a few episodes during the election year.

What's not immediately clear about the order is who else of the original cast may be on board.

Besides winning a cache of Emmys during its run, the show made headlines in 1992 after then vice president Dan Quayle criticized Murphy Brown's decision to have a child out of wedlock.

NBC has Will and Grace, ABC has Roseanne and now CBS is joining the sitcom reboot game with Murphy Brown.

Search underway for woman who fell overboard on cruise
A search is now underway for a woman who went overboard the Carnival Triumph cruise ship which is based out of New Orleans . This was the second risky fall aboard a Carnival cruise ship over the weekend.

During the show's original 10-year run on CBS, "Murphy Brown" won 18 Emmy Awards, three Golden Globe Awards, and three Screen Actors Guild Awards. Candice Bergen, center, with Grant Shaud, left, Faith Ford, Charles Kimbrough and Joe Regalbuto.

Warner Bros. Television, producers of the original series, will produce the new multi-camera comedy with original creator Diane English serving as writer/executive producer through her Bend in the Road Productions banner. The new series will be set in the present and find Murphy dealing with the current political climate, cable news and social media. CBS set a 2018-19 schedule for the new comedy, but we won't have a firm release date for a few weeks. That library is nearly sure to land somewhere in the run-up to its TV return - and the price tag on those 247 episodes should prove to be a lucrative side effect of this revival.

TV Guide named Murphy Brown one of the "25 Greatest TV Characters of All Time" in 2010.
