The latest TV series to be potentially rebooted is classic “The Honeymooners” on CBS, which is described as a bold, female-fronted reimagining of the iconic working-class comedy centered around new wife, Ruth, and her husband, Alex, who are determined to have a marriage where they are true equals in every way. But what happens when a marriage has two heads of household? Are they co-heads? Or no head at all?

The proposed multi-camera reboot is executive-produced by Damon Wayans, Jr. and Kameron Tarlow (through their Two Shakes Entertainment shingle) and written by Lindsey Shockley (“Mixed-ish”). It also hails from CBS Studios.

The original “The Honeymooners”, of course, is remembered for those classic 39 episodes in its one broadcast season as a standalone series in 1955-56. But combined with the various “Honeymooners” sketches, beginning with the aforementioned “Cavalcade of Stars” in 1949, and subsequently on CBS variety hour “The Jackie Gleason Show”, the beloved characters — Ralph and Alice Kramden, and Ed and Trixie Norton — were seen sporadically on television through 1978.

No casting has been announced for this new version of “The Honeymooners.”
