70's TV series "Love, American Style" to get reboot

According to Deadline, the only real "reboot" component will be the name, not the concept. According to Deadline, CBS’ Love, American Style follows the lives of four different couples who are connected through the many stages of love and their complicated relationships.

As many folks know, the original Love, American Style was an "anthology" series that ran for five years on ABC in the 1970s.

From Wikipedia:

Each week, the show featured unrelated stories of romance, usually with a comedic spin. Episodes featured different characters, stories, and locations. The show often featured the same actors playing different characters in many episodes. In addition, a large, ornate brass bed was a recurring prop in many episodes. Charles Fox's delicate yet hip music score, featuring flutes, harp, and flugelhorn set to a contemporary pop beat, provided the "love" ambiance which tied the stories together as a multifaceted romantic comedy each week.

Frothy and light, it was easy viewing for any audience at the time. And who didn't love the "groovy" theme song (check it out above)?


  1. So basically it's just gonna be another "Rules of Engagement".

  2. EXACTLY! That was what I was thinking.... :)

    1. I would be much more interested if it was a true reboot, offering an anthology of various couples. Think of what they could do - straight, gay, inter-racial / multi-ethnic, generational. It could really be something special.
