LOS ANGELES, Jan. 23 (UPI) -- U.S. comedy icon Bill Cosby is to star in a multi-generational family sitcom for NBC, Deadline.com reported.

The project reunites Cosby, 76, with producer Tom Werner, whose company with Marcy Carsey produced "The Cosby Show," the entertainment news website said.

"They would like to see a married couple that acts like they love each other, warts and all, children who respect the parenting, and the comedy of people who make mistakes. Warmth and forgiveness," Cosby told Yahoo TV last November. "So I hope to get that opportunity, and I will deliver the best of Cosby."

"The Cosby Show" ran from 1984 to 1992.
