Recently, Queen Latifah appeared on Andy Cohen’s Watch What Happens Live! to confirm that her classic 90s show Living Single is in the process of a comeback.
“We’re actually working on it. It’s not there yet but like hopefully we can get it happening,” Queen Latifah
Living Single originally aired on FOX for five seasons from 1993-1998.
The show paved the way for shows such as Girlfriends and Being Mary Jane.
Queen Latifah also mentioned the similarities between Living Single and Friends. Both shows were based in New York City.
“It was one of those things where it was a guy called Warren Littlefield who used to run NBC, and they asked him when all the new shows came out, they said “If there’s any show that you could have, which one would it be?” and he said, ‘Living Single’ — and he created Friends,” Queen Latifah
Both Friends and Living Single received enormous popularity. However, Friends is one of the most successful television shows to air. The show has won Primetime Emmys, Golden Globes, and People’s Choice Awards. Living Single has received recognition from the NAACP (National Association for the Advancement of Colored People) Image Award.
Despite Friends awards, Queen Latifah has no animosity towards the show.
“But Friends was so good; it’s not like we hated on it or everything, but it was like, you know,” Latifah said.
