Candice Bergen Returning To Star In New 'Murphy Brown' Revival On CBS

Setting the show in 2018 would mean a vast cultural update: per CBS, Murphy Brown "returns to a world of cable news, social media, fake news, and a very different political and cultural climate". They include creator Diane English, who will serve as writer and executive producer for Warner Bros.

"Murphy Brown" became a focal point during the 1992 George H.W. Bush-Bill Clinton presidential campaign when Quayle criticized a plot line that had the unmarried Brown having a child.

CBS has announced the revival of its classic comedy series "Murphy Brown" for the 2018-2019 television season. In fact, openly sparring with politicians is an integral part of the show's legacy; perhaps its most (in) famous installment came in Season 4, after Dan Quayle cited the series as evidence of America's moral degradation, saying that Brown's decision in the show to have a child out of wedlock "mock [ed] the importance of fathers". A show about a 40-something single mother and career woman (!) touched such a nerve that the Vice President of the United States singled out the show as an example of the decay of family values in America. Murphy Brown is bound to take a less dramatic route without scrimping on the biting commentary.

Dern shared her joy at Streep's addition to the cast on Instagram, writing: "Well, now my acting dream has come true". The 68-year-old star is best known for her film work but she has appeared in TV shows before and has won three Emmys.

In a 2002 interview, Bergen revealed that she actually agreed with most of what Quayle had to say, calling it "a perfectly intelligent speech". In one episode, Bergen's character smoked marijuana to ease the pain of chemotherapy, a move both praised and condemned.

Bergen won five Emmys for the role, finally taking herself out of the running to in 1996 give other actresses a chance. However, she is not only a powerful woman in the media industry; she eventually was also shown juggling her job with the (then unreasonably controversial) responsibilities of single motherhood. Charles Kimbrough is reportedly "semi-retired", while Faith Ford, Grant Shaud and Joe Regalbuto are all appearing in other series.

Robert Pastorelli, who played Eldin the housepainter, died in 2004.
