But the announcement was not that the CBS show’s six-season catalog would coming to one of the soon-to-be launched streaming services like HBO Max or Peacock, as some anticipated, or that there would be a revival of the series, which centers on a cosmetics saleswoman who is fired from her job at a bridal shop and becomes a caretaker to a Broadway producer’s three children.
Variety has learned that the original cast of the Sony Pictures Television-produced show is reuniting for a virtual table read of the pilot via Zoom, which will be posted on the Sony Pictures YouTube page the morning of Monday, April 6.
