Fox tries to keep comedy momentum going with ‘In Living Color’ specials

This has been a good season for live action comedy on Fox, and it’s trying to keep the momentum going -- the network announced it will resurrect 90s sketch comedy series “In Living Color” for two mid-season specials.

Fox, which has struggled with live action comedy in the past but found a hit in this season’s “New Girl,” originally broadcast “In Living Color” from 1990 to 1994. The new specials — premiering in spring 2012 — will be a modern-day take on the show, and hosted/exec-produced by original series creator Keenen Ivory Wayans.

The original series also launched the career of Daman Waynans and his siblings, also featuring David Alan Grier, Jamie Foxx, not to mention current “American Idol” judge Jennifer Lopez as one of the show’s Fly Girl dancers.

Earlier this year, Fox aired another similar sketch show, “In the Flow With Affion Crockett,” produced by Jamie Foxx.
