The New Odd Couple

Show Summary

The New Odd Couple was an attempt to revive the hit 1970-75 sitcom "The Odd Couple". This time however, the two main characters (Felix & Oscar) were African-American. The original supporting characters also appeared in the new show played by different actors. More than anything else, what killed the show was a lack of new plots. Eight of the episodes used recycled scripts from the original show. By the time the writers began producing new scripts, it was too late, and the show was cancelled. The New Odd Couple was occasionally rerun on BET and TVLand.
