According to programming vice president Thom Sherman, the story line will have the returning characters working for a morning cable news show called "Murphy in the Morning".

The CBS enthusiasm for a "Murphy Brown" redux undoubtedly was fueled by the success of comedy revivals at ABC ("Roseanne") and NBC ("Will & Grace").

Original cast members Faith Ford, Joe Regalbuto, and Grant Shaud will reprise their roles as Corky Sherwood, Frank Fontana and Miles Silverberg. Emmy victor Tyne Daly ("Cagney & Lacey") joins the cast as Phyllis, the sister of the deceased bar owner Phil (played by the late Pat Corley in the original series). Now, almost 20 years after the final episode of the series aired, "Murphy Brown" is back, looking to take on the world's new 24-hour news cycle.

As it unveils its new series, CBS welcomes you to the TV of 2018, which is really just the TV of 30 years ago. Take a look at trailers for the new shows below. The show airs at 20.30 on Mondays from this fall.
