LOS ANGELES (AP) — Good times are coming to the big screen. “Black-ish” creator Kenya Barris has been set to write the screenplay for a “Good Times” film based on the hit ’70s sitcom, his manager confirmed to The Associated Press.

“Good Times,” which aired on CBS from 1974 to 1979, was about an African-American family living in a poor neighborhood in Chicago.

Barris, who is also writing the screenplay for “Barbershop 3,” tweeted Monday that he was excited about the project. Known primarily for his work on the ABC sitcom “Black-ish” and creating “America’s Next Top Model,” Barris has also written for “Girlfriends,” ”The Game,” and “Are We There Yet?”

No director or stars have been set for the project yet.

A representative from Sony Pictures had no comment.
