NEW YORK – He's been a minister, an activist and a presidential candidate. Now Al Sharpton wants to be a sitcom star.
Sharpton told the Daily News in Saturday's editions that he is working with CBS on a pilot, tentatively named, "Al in the Family."
"It's about conflicting social and political views," Sharpton said. "There'll also be a social message."
The Democrat, who has also run for mayor of New York and the U.S. Senate, said one possible episode would have one of his TV children becoming a Republican.
"I don't know if I am a good actor or not, but I will be playing myself and I have been practicing that for 51 years," he said.
