Archie and Edith are coming back to TV. The 90-minute special celebrates the 96-year-old writer, director and producer Norman Lear. The special will re-create one episode from the series and another from the spin-off show The Jeffersons.
Woody Harrelson steps into the iconic role of Archie Bunker and Marisa Tomei plays his long-suffering wife Edith. Jamie Foxx and Wanda Sykes will play George and Louise Jefferson in The Jeffersons. The special will be hosted by both Lear and late night TV host Jimmy Kimmel, who came up with the idea. It airs May 22.
