It is DYNOMITE that black-ish creator Kenya Barris is set to make the 70’s TV hitÂ Good TimesÂ into a movie.
The long-running sitcom about a black family struggling in the Chicago projects in the 1960s became a TV cultural phenomenon. Kenya will write the script, which we’re such will have the some level of hilarity as the hit TV series and his new award-winning show black-ish.
According to Deadline, the show was a spinoff of Maude, which itself was a spinoff ofÂ All In The Family. Good Times followed the struggles of working-class couple James and Florida Evans, who raised three kids through financial hardship as they tried to keep their kids away from trouble during a politically and socially turbulent time in a Chicago housing project. They are setting the movie in the 1960s. It begs the question who will play the Evans kids, J.J, Michael and Thelma.
Ain’t we lucky we got Kenya Barris?
We’ll keep you posted as more develops about this project.
