Bill Cosby and his former producing partner from "The Cosby Show" are teaming up again for a new family centered sitcom.

The comedian, 76, and Tom Werner are collaborating more than 20 years after the popular show went off the air.

NBC, which originally aired the Emmy winning "Cosby Show" for eight seasons, and the actor are teaming up on the series. According to the Hollywood Reporter, the as-yet-to-be-titled comedy will feature Cosby as a patriarch of a multi-generational family.

Cosby most recently starred in "Cosby" from 1996 to 2000 with his former on-screen wife Phylicia Rashad. The program was based on British series "One Foot in the Grave."

In addition, Cosby hopes to revive his cartoon series "Fat Albert And The Cosby Kids."
