"The Partridge Family" is headed for a return to the small screen. NBC has picked up a contemporary single-camera take on the classic ABC sitcom.
The show's writer, Jeff Rake, is a fan of the 1970s series who plans to "turn the premise on its head."
"In the original, the kids actually recruited their mom to front the band, which I can't see happening in any family on this planet," he said.
"The new version will reflect what seems to me to be the more realistic family band scenario these days: a struggling, sort of well-meaning mom pimping her kids in order to create a wholesome-slash-sexy cash cow."
