The entertainment industry is alive now more than ever, especially in our modern culture in which social media platforms are ever-so-present and relevant, and basically dictate what is popular and successful or what is doomed to be a failure.
This is especially true for TV shows which move forward with an unprecedented speed, creating either cult classics like Game of Thrones, Breaking Bad, The Office… or TV shows that face their demise even before season 1 finale.
So, if certain shows already ended perfectly, why resuscitating them at all?
Safe Bets And Proven Success
It appears that broadcasting companies and channels are trending toward turning back to the past and relying on proven successes of certain projects in order to stay in the game and carve their coveted place in the over-populated market.
Now, we learn that NBC is definitely looking to follow suit as they are apparently planning on reviving not one but several extremely well-known TV shows.
NBC Entertainment Chairman, Bob Greenblatt, just revealed that he has “casually spoken to the creators of West Wing, The Office, ER and 30 Rock” about the possibility of bringing back these shows for brand new seasons.
Speaking to Deadline, Greenblatt talked about his desire to revive The Office:
“We often talk about The Office, I’ve talked to Greg four times over the past few years. It’s always, ‘maybe some day but not now.’ There is certainly an open invitation but we don’t have anything happening right now. If he wants to do it, I would do it.”
Greenblatt also displayed a similar desire to bring back Tina Fey’s insanely popular 30 Rock: “I’d say to Tina ‘Hey, you think some more 30 Rock makes any sense?’ She’d say, I don’t know – maybe.’”
…Yes, we are ware these are all maybes, but we can totally see some of these shows hitting our small screens yet again.
