What Would ‘Murphy Brown’ Be Doing Today?

“Murphy Brown” was one of the preeminent sitcoms of the 1990s. The show, which starred Candice Bergen as the title investigative journalist and anchor, was a huge hit for CBS, and had a major cultural impact.

Last year, rumors abounded that the show may come back as a special for the 2012 election. That never came to fruition, but The Hollywood Reporter reunited the original writer’s room, and asked creator Diane English what Brown would be up to today:
