‘The Facts of Life’ & ‘Diff’rent Strokes’ Preview

In 2019, late-night host and comedian Jimmy Kimmel conceived of an idea of live specials where current stars re-create classic sitcom episodes. It began with “All in the Family” and “The Jeffersons” in May 2019, then in December 2019 came the second set with episodes of “All in The Family” and “Good Times.”

After taking 2020 off, the special is back with its third iteration — a staging of “The Facts of Life” and “Diff’rent Strokes.” The specials are always co-produced by TV legend Norman Lear, who was a producer on many of these original shows.

The ABC press release teases:

The one-night-only live event will reunite executive producers Norman Lear, Jimmy Kimmel, Brent Miller, Kerry Washington, Will Ferrell, Justin Theroux and Jim Burrows and will feature an all-star cast with John Lithgow who will play Mr. Drummond, Kevin Hart assuming the role of Arnold, and Damon Wayans and Ann Dowd, who will play Willis and Mrs. Garrett in “Diff’rent Strokes.”

An all-star lineup of talent will tackle the roles first portrayed in the iconic television sitcom “The Facts of Life,” including Jennifer Aniston playing the role of Blair, Gabrielle Union taking on the role of Tootie, Allison Tolman, who will play Natalie, and Kathryn Hahn recreating the role of Jo.

Jon Stewart takes on a mystery role in “The Facts of Life.”

“I cannot imagine a better group than Jennifer Aniston, Allison Tolman, Gabrielle Union, Kathryn Hahn and Ann Dowd, and I can’t wait to do their hair,” said executive producer Jimmy Kimmel in a statement.

“Other than with my family, there’s no place I’d rather be in my 100th year than on a soundstage at Sony with these glorious actors reliving what our company had produced all those years ago and sharing it with the millions of viewers who could use a little laughter,” said Norman Lear.

“Thanks, again, to ABC and Sony Pictures Television for supporting our creative conceit and our incredible cast as we try to make what might seem like the impossible possible — once again. I couldn’t be more excited to end this year producing a project that supports, promotes and encourages appointment TV with those you care for,” said executive producer Brent Miller.

Executive producer Kerry Washington said, “It has been an honor and highlight of my career to collaborate with the legendary Norman Lear, Jimmy Kimmel, ABC and Sony. Part of the magic of Norman’s iconic TV series is that they resonate with audiences today just as much as they did decades ago. Reliving and reimagining them feels like pure joy. I keep wondering when this will start to feel like work!”

The latest “Live In Front of A Studio Audience” premieres Tuesday, December 7 at 8 p.m. Eastern and Pacific times on ABC.
