Bill Cosby is back to work.
Following his conviction being overturned earlier this summer, the former Cosby Show star now 84-years-old is trying to get back to his old life with new projects, including a potential return to television if he has his way.
Fox News confirmed that Cosby’s spokesperson, Andrew Wyatt, revealed his plans to make a comeback, telling the outlet that he’s at home in Massachusetts “spending time on the phone working on a number of projects.” Despite the announcement, Wyatt says he and the rest of Cosby’s team are staying hush on what’s in store, which reportedly has been in talks since he was still incarcerated at SCI Phoenix in Collegeville, PA.
In regards to the TV show idea, Wyatt said, “Things are happening. He’s working on a number of projects right now, a number of ideas for a TV show that has him on the phone with producers, working with guys every day,” also adding, “He’s giving his creative ideas and input.”
Wyatt via Fox News:
“‘He’s been working on this particular project now for a year and a half. When he was a resident of SCI Phoenix he would have phone calls with producers."
"Cosby is also working on a book."
‘He’s on the phone almost every day for the book as well. He’s working. That’s why people don’t see him as much. When he was at SCI Phoenix it wasn’t our time so phone calls would be probably two, three times a week for that kind of stuff. Now he has the time. He can speak freely when he wants to. That’s his primary focus since he’s gotten out – to come out and be able to have projects and to work with people who want to work with him.”
Cosby was accused of sexual assault with dozens of women coming forward with decades-worth of abuse claims against the once-respected TV dad. Those accusations sent him to prison back in 2018.
