‘Cosby Show’ Star Tempestt Bledsoe in New Show “Guys With Kids” That Portrays a Positive Black Family
At the Essence Music Festival, former child star Tempestt Bledsoe and actor/comedian Anthony Anderson spoke with the Associated Press about a new show she will be starring in called. “Guys with Kids.”
She reminisced on how ‘The Cosby Show’ shaped her into who she is today:
“That show was my childhood,…It did so many things. It greatly influenced the kinds of projects I did. It helped form my core values, like my work ethic.”
Well, now she can say that she is starring in yet another positive black family show that is not seen on television right now, so she says.
“We just don’t have that right now, not on network television,” said Anderson, who has two children of his own. “Like the Cosby Show, this will be an opportunity to see the love, support, humor and beauty of a black family on TV.”
The show , “Guys with Kids” is produced by Jimmy Fallon, is about three 30-something new dads trying to hold on to their youth. “Guys With Kids” will also star Jamie-Lynn Sigler of “The Sopranos” and actors Zach Cregger and Jesse Bradford. One of the characters is a single dad, another is a working father and Anderson’s character is a stay-at-home dad raising four young sons.
