NBC Pulls Plug on Bill Cosby Comedy

Sexual allegations against Bill Cosby has continued to be exposed with a sum of 15 women making complaints, six of them having identified themselves publicly- NBC has chose to terminate a sitcom it was creating with the comedian for next year. The network refused to talk more about the project which would have starred Cosby as the father of a multi-generational family and was at the initial stages of development.

TV Land pulled every “Cosby Show” rerun from its schedule on Wednesday to take effect immediately. On Tuesday, Netflix likewise decided to suspend the streaming of its Thanks giving Day special “Bill Cosby 77” following a statement by actress and Model Janice Dickson saying that she was targeted for assault by Cosby in the 1980s. Cosby lawyer, Marty Singer dismissed Dicksons allegations as a “complete lie”.

The claims first came out in 2005 when Andrea Constand, the former director of operations of Temple University’s women’s basketball program, charged Cosby alleging that he had offered her pills he called “herbal medication” to help her handle stress when she visited him at his Philadelphia area mansion in 2004 and, after taking them, he touched her breasts and genitals and assaulted her.

Cosby has a number of stand up shows planned over the next several days, including a sold out show at the king center for the performing arts in Melbourne, FL, on Friday which will continue, to quote a statement released by the King Center management.

“Mr. Cosby is a well-respected member of the entertainment community and one of America’s most beloved performers. While we are aware of the allegations reported in the press, we are only in a position to judge him based on his career as an entertainer and humanitarian."
