The vintage TV shows of the 80s and 90s are getting a lot of attention lately thanks to the resurgence of “The Sopranos” and the return of “Battlestar Galactica.”
The genre has had a resurgence in the last few years, and the showrunners behind those shows have been talking about how they want to bring the shows to life in the modern era.
For instance, in a recent interview with the New York Times, co-creator and showrunner Mark Leno said that he’d like to bring some of the old-school elements of the shows that were on the air when he started working on “Sopranos.”
“The Soprano” started life in 1969 as a syndicated syndicated show that ran on a network called WXYT-TV.
Leno is a lifelong fan of “Sip.”
And in the interview, he mentioned that he thinks that he and co-creators David Chase and David Chase Jr. might have the best chance of bringing “Sopa” to a new audience than any other showrunners he knows.
The Sopranios were a hit with young people, Leno noted, and that appeal was reflected in the show’s popularity in the 70s and 80s.
“We’re looking for an audience that has a lot in common with the young people who were watching the show in the ’70s,” Leno told the Times.
“That was an interesting demographic for us to be able to tap into.”
Leno’s interview with WXYt-TV goes into detail about how he thinks the show could work on a small screen, and he also touches on some of his other ideas for the series.
One idea that Leno has floated is for the characters to be “the new wave” of the series, with the main character being a woman who “becomes” the character’s husband.
“There’s something about the fact that we’re not going to be playing a married woman,” Lenos co-star, David Chase, said.
“We’re going to go with the ’60s era where people were just doing it in their homes, or they were living in a trailer park.”
Leno also said that the show would explore how the idea of “family” is a big part of American culture, and if there’s anything to be said for “The Bachelor” as an example of a show where you can get a family together in a romantic way.
“I’ve always thought of it as sort of a modern family drama,” he told the newspaper.
When you’re an adult, you know, you just want to be a normal person and live your life.””
When you’re a kid, you’re doing it all the time.
When you’re an adult, you know, you just want to be a normal person and live your life.”
While Leno’s vision for the show has yet to be fully developed, he does say that he wants to have some kind of family dynamic.
“When you watch ‘The Sopra’, it’s about the family, right?
But the family is very different than what it used to be in the 90s,” he said.
The “Sos” writers and executive producer have talked about a number of possible scenarios for the character, and one idea that has been discussed is that they could play it like a “Family Guy” episode.
“The idea is that you’ve got this really good, young guy, and his parents are just a little bit nuts,” Chase said.
Chase added that the series could have some sort of family-centric angle to it.
“You have to make a decision about how to be the father,” he continued.
“And if you’re not a good father, you go and do it in a very different way.”
One idea that Chase is pushing for is that the characters could have a romantic relationship with each other, and possibly even get married to each other.
“It’s going to involve a lot more of the romance, and you’ll be able see that as a way to introduce that to the audience,” Chase told the paper.
“I think that could be a great idea.
It’s going with what the audience wants.””
If we do that, it could be something that people would watch.
It’s going with what the audience wants.”
The show’s revival is just one of several things that Lenos is hoping to accomplish for “Solo.”
Lenos also recently announced that the “Sophie’s Choice” television series will return to ABC, and Leno hinted at a possible return to television in the future.
“If we ever do a TV show, it’s going be on a show that’s very much like the ‘Sophia’s Choice’ shows
