Sitcom legend Norman Lear is teaming up with NBA star Steph Curry and ‘Family Guy’ creator Seth MacFarlane to help bring Good Times to Netflix as a modern animated series. ‘Boondocks’ veteran Carl Jones will be showrunner.
As reimagined by Jones, the animated “Good Times” will tackle a new story but will be inspired by the live-action show and the Evans family.
In the original series, Esther Rolle and John Amos played Florida and James Evans, the household heads of a family living in Chicago’s Cabrini-Green public housing project. Ja’Net Dubois, Ralph Carter, Jimmie Walker and Bern Nadette Stanis also starred.
Below are the original opening and closing credits for the Chicago-based show:
