Feb. 26 (UPI) -- Faith Ford, Joe Regalbuto and Grant Shaud are set to reprise their Murphy Brown roles of Corky Sherwood, Frank Fontana and Miles Silverberg on the upcoming revival of the sitcom, CBS announced Monday.
The show about broadcast journalists in Washington, D.C., initially ran 1988-98.
CBS announced in January it ordered 13 new episodes for the 2018-19 broadcast season. It once again will star Emmy-winner Candice Bergen as the titular news anchor. The original show's creator, Diane English, is serving as writer/executive producer on the update of the sitcom.
"As its 30th anniversary approaches, Murphy Brown returns to a world of cable news, social media, fake news and a very different political and cultural climate," a news release said.
