Kali Hawk, who recurs on Fox’s freshman comedy New Girl, has been tapped as a performer on the network’s In Living Color reboot, executive produced by Keenan Ivory Wayans, creator and star of the groundbreaking 1990s original.
Also cast in the remake is Jennifer Bartels. They join recently cast Jermaine Fowler and Lil Rel Howery. The new In Living Color will debut as two half-hour specials. They were originally eyed to air in conjunction with Fox’s 25th anniversary celebration, which will be marked with a special on April 22.
In Living Color was a groundbreaking sketch comedy show that launched the careers of Jim Carey, Jamie Foxx and even Jennifer Lopez. It was a Wayans family effort that also included Damon, Kim and Shawn. It ran from 1990 to 1994.
The In Living Color specials, which will film in April, will now air at a later day, with a May berth a possibility. Fox21 is producing. Hawk’s feature credits includes Couples Retreat, Get Him To The Greek and last summer’s smash Bridesmaids. Bartels is with Stewart Talent and 3 Arts.
