TV "The Wonder Years" Reboot with Black Family in the Works at ABC

"The Wonder Years" Reboot with Black Family in the Works at ABC from Saladin K. Patterson, Lee Daniels & Fred Savage
by Nellie Andreeva
July 8, 2020



ABC has handed a pilot production commitment to "The Wonder Years", a new iteration of the network’s 1980s family comedy-drama. It comes from Dave executive producer Saladin K. Patterson, "Empire" co-creator Lee Daniels, the original series’ breakout star Fred Savage and 20th Century Fox TV.

Written by Patterson inspired by his experiences growing up in Montgomery, Alabama, the new incarnation chronicles a Black middle-class family in Montgomery, Alabama in the turbulent late 1960’s — the same era as the original series.




"The Wonder Years" has a pilot production commitment. If the pilot script is approved for pilot production by ABC, the sign-off will also trigger the opening of a mini writer’s room in preparation for a possible series pickup.

Savage will direct the potential pilot. He and Patterson executive produce the half-hour project with Lee Daniels Entertainment’ Daniels and Marc Velez.

Saycon Sengbloh to Star in ABC's "The Wonder Years" Reboot Pilot
by Nellie Andreeva
March 4, 2021



"The Wonder Years" reboot has found its mom.

Saycon Sengbloh (In the Dark) has been cast as a lead in the ABC single-camera comedy pilot from Dave exec producer Saladin Patterson, the original series’ star Fred Savage and co-creator Lee Daniels.



Sengbloh will play Lillian Williams. Sharp as a tack, Lillian is confident, kind, perceptive and has a good sense of humor. She knows exactly the right thing to say to convince you of anything.

As a mother, wife and full-time accountant, she’s organized, efficient and hard-working, but she always puts family first.

'Wonder Years' reboot casts Elisha Williams in Fred Savage role https://trib.al/lLHmaJ3



Fred Savage introduces The Wonder Years reboot's young new lead: Elisha “EJ” Williams

Lee Daniels' Black-themed Wonder Years reboot has cast Williams as Dean, an inquisitive and hopeful 12-year-old, who is trying to figure out his place within his Black family and the world at large, while coming of age in a turbulent time. Williams' credits include Disney Junior's Puppy Dog Pals, and Nickelodeon's Henry Danger and Danger Force.

ABC's The Wonder Years reboot casts Dulé Hill as the father and Laura Kariuki as the sister

Hill will star as family patriarch Bill Williams opposite the previously cast Saycon Sengbloh, who will play family matriarch Lillian. Kariuki will play Kim Williams, the teenage sister of main cast member Elisha Williams, who plays Dean. Hill's character is a "a music professor by day and a funk musician by night – described by Adult Dean as 'The baddest guy I knew,'" according to Variety. "Almost always calm and composed, his favorite words are “be cool.” Bill wants his family and their black, middle class neighborhood to remain self-sufficient and he puts his money where his mouth is."

The Wonder Years reboot adds three child actors, including the casting of its Winnie Cooper

Milan Ray will play Keisa Clemmons, the apple of the eye of Dean, the star of ABC's The Wonder Years reboot played by Elisha “EJ” Williams. In addition, Julian Lerner and Amari O’Neil have joined the cast as Dean's best friends.

Don Cheadle joins The Wonder Years reboot as narrator

He'll voice the adult version of Dean Williams, played by Elisha “EJ” Williams. In the original Wonder Years, Daniel Stern served as narrator, voicing the adult Kevin Arnold.

Check out the first image of ABC's The Wonder Years reboot featuring a Black family

Lee Daniels shared the first image of the ABC pilot focusing on Elisha “EJ” Williams as Dean Williams, with Dulé Hill as his father, Saycon Sengbloh as his mother and Laura Kariuki as his sister.

Lol

ABC had to resist the urge to rename it "The Stevie Wonder Years."
