'Read Between the Lines' Puts Malcolm-Jamal Warner Back in a Family Sitcom (VIDEO)

Malcolm-Jamal Warner grew up in one of TV's most iconic families in his role as Theo Huxtable on 'The Cosby Show.' Now, all these years later, after a cameo on 'Community' and a bevy of other projects, Warner is back to tackling the family sitcom. He stopped by 'Good Day NY' (weekdays, (9AM ET on Fox) to preview his new show 'Read Between the Lines.'

Warner doesn't shy away from the 'Cosby Show' comparisons, although he was careful to say that trying to recreate it would be foolish. But he did say the show was striving to capture that same "sense of universality, that sense of positive family values and family love, and a couple that's actually happily married."

The 'Cosby' similarities don't stop there, though. In the show, Warner stars with Tracee-Ellis Ross, Diana's daughter. The couple both play doctors. "Shes a psychologist and I'm an NYU English professor who teaches online so I can stay home with the three kids," Warner said.

'Read Between the Lines' premieres Tues., Oct. 11 at 10PM ET on BET.

You realize that it's actually called Reed Between the Lines, right?
