“I couldn’t be prouder and more excited about joining Sony Pictures Television, who has the guts to go with a kid,” the writer joked about the deal.

Netflix is already airing a reboot of his series “One Day at a Time.”

Sony owns the remainder of the Lear portfolio and retains the option to reboot any of them. Among Lear’s other hits were “All in the Family,” “The Jeffersons,” “Maude” and “Good Times.”
