On Friday, Tia Mowry sat down with “ET,” where she gushed over her hit ’90s comedy series, whch also starred her twin sister, Tamara, and whether a revival is really in the works.
“I will say this, we are definitely closer than ever,” the 39-year-old shared. “That’s basically all I can say. But I’m getting excited.”
As previously reported, last we heard of the project, creators still had their work cut out for them. “We’re looking, right now, for a producer and a writer, someone who can kind of be a leader of the pack in regards to running the show,” Mowry told Nylon magazine, back in June. “I thought people would kind of be jumping on it, but it’s a lot harder than my sister and I thought it would be. Everything in my career has always been a challenge.”
So, will the rest of the original cast be signing on the dotted line? “Yes. As I know of now, definitely Jackee Harry and Tim Reid will definitely be part of the show,” explained Mowry.
While the actress remained mum about the show’s possible storyline, she did touch on where she’d like to see the series go, 18 years after it aired its series finale.
“I think I would want it to pick up with where our lives are now. We’re married with kids,” Mowry said. “But I definitely would want it to focus on the power of sisterhood. How wonderful and amazing that sisterhood and that relationship can be. How it helps you in whatever trial and tribulations you are in. When you have the sisterhood and that bond, that is so beautiful.”
“Sister, Sister,” which ran from 1994-1999, was centered around identical twins — Tia Landry and Tamera Campbell — who learned of each other as teenagers after being separated at birth and adopted by different families. Meanwhile, Mowry revealed that the show, which also starred Jackee Harry, Tim Reid and Marques Houston, drew on personal experiences of the sisters’ daily lives.
In the meantime, Mowry has her hands full managing her YouTube channel, Quick Fix, where she shares weekly life hacks, quick meal ideas, beauty tips and more.
