"I don't think he's going to be able to resist making a comment, and we welcome that," says Diane English. "That's fun for us. We don't welcome what might be a very aggressive reaction from some of the supporters out there. We're bracing ourselves." English says she studied Will & Grace's revival to see how topical and relevant her revival should be. In fact, an upcoming episode features a storyline that is very similar to the recent controversy over The New Yorker inviting Steve Bannon to participate in its Idea Festival. Meanwhile, the fourth episode, titled "#MurphyToo," will tackle the #MeToo movement. "In the episode '#MurphyToo,' we have a very in-depth look at the issue — for a 21-minute show. We wanted to look at both generations' perspectives of the huge issue of sexual harassment," says Candice Bergen. "There's a dramatic scene between Murphy and her son."
