HBO Max taps Robin Thede and London Hughes to headline a reboot of the ABC comedy Perfect Strangers with the duo as half-sisters in Brooklyn.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, HBO Max’s Perfect Strangers will be a multicamera comedy starring Thede and London as inheritors of a Fort Greene, Brooklyn one-bedroom above a trap yoga studio who discover they are half-sisters. “Polar opposites, they must learn how to live and work together,” the logline reads.
Black Lady Sketch Show star Robin Thede is tapped to pen the script and executive produce alongside original Perfect Strangers EP Robert L. Boyett. Thede has an overall deal with Warner Bros. Television under her For Better or Words studio.
Running for eight seasons between 1986 and 1993, Perfect Strangers starred Mark Linn-Baker as Larry Appleton and Bronson Pinchot as Balki Bartokomous. Balki hailed from the fictional Mediterranean island of Mypos and moves to Chicago, where he meets and moves in with his distant cousin Larry. Perfect Strangers was created by Dale McRaven, who also co-created Mork & Mindy. Perfect Strangers was one of the breakout hits from ABC’s TGIF comedy lineup, which also included hits like Family Matters and Full House.
