THE Married With Children cast reunited this week in Hollywood with Christina Applegate hinting that one of the beloved characters may be set for a spin-off series.
E News reports that Sony Pictures is considering a pitch based around David Faustino’s character, Bud Bundy.
So far now deal has been signed but the idea is certainly generating a buzz.
The cast reunited this week as Katey Sagal, who played Peg Bundy in the show and now stars in Sons of Anarchy, received a star on Hollywood’s Walk of Fame.
Applegate teased that a televised Married With Children reunion may be on the cards.
“We’re going to do something with Dave maybe,” she said. “But I don’t really know. I don’t know what that’s going to be. I don’t know if I’m allowed to speak on that at all. So I should probably stop talking about it right now!”
Hit sitcom … Actors Katey Sagal and Ed O’Neill with David Faustino (L-back) and Christina Applegate in the TV show Married With Children.
Getting the whole cast back together however might prove difficult. Ed O’Neill has found success again on the hit sitcom Modern Family, while Sagal is starring in Sons of Anarchy, although that series comes to an end this season.
“We’ve talked about [a reunion] every year, but then there are so many pieces that have to be in alignment that for some reason it never happens,” Sagal told E News. “But we love each other. Well, we’re all working now, so it’s hard to find the time!”
Married With Children was about a dysfunctional family living in Chicago and aired for 11 seasons.
