Could Cliff Huxtable be returning to TV? Not exactly.

But Bill Cosby has "made a deal" with NBC for a half-hour comedy starring the actor, 76, reports Deadline.

Cosby, who appeared in 197 episodes of The Cosby Show from 1984 to 1992, is reteaming with producer Tom Werner, whose company with Marcy Carsey produced Cosby Show.

The new comedy will be built around Cosby, who will play the patriarch of a multi-generational family and, once again, will offer his take on marriage and parenting. Deadline says Cosby and Werner are meeting with writers on the project.

Cosby is currently touring with his latest stand-up comedy show, aptly titled Far From Finished.
