‘Thirtysomething(else)’ will feature kids from original series all grown up

“We’re gearing up for a series but we’ll start with a pilot,” said Karey Burke, ABC entertainment president.

The original show ran 1987-1991. Ken Olin, Mel Harris, Timothy Busfield and Patty WettigMarshall Herskovitz and Edward Zwick created the show. They’ll produce thirtysomething(else).
