FamousBill Cosby was released from prison last Wednesday. The Pennsylvania Supreme Court overturned Cosby’s sexual assault conviction because the trial was unfair. But the 83-year-old American comedian is still full of plans. A documentary and book about his condition are likely on the way, and Bill also wants to get back on stage.
Cosby says he’s collaborating on a documentary with Michel Major, former producer of Good Morning America. According to Cosby, everything is almost ready and he just has to do the interview, which will take place in the coming weeks. The documentary was to be produced by Lionsgate Entertainment. Neither Major, who also attended the trial, nor Lionsgate Entertainment wish to comment.
Cosby also revealed that he would “probably” be working on a book about his story and that he had spoken with his manager about returning to the platform.

Bill Cosby, world-renowned for his role on “The Cosby Show,” was convicted of drugging and assaulting Andrea Constand, an employee of Temple University near his hometown. The facts are said to have occurred in 2004. Cosby was eventually arrested in 2015, just days before the statute of limitations was set.
At the trial, another woman first testified against Cosby, but the jury was unable to reach a verdict. The judge then allowed five other women to testify about their (forbidden) experiences with Cosby. After that, the actor was sentenced to 3-10 years in prison, of which he has now served 2 years. But the Pennsylvania Supreme Court has now ruled that these additional testimony distorted the process. Cosby’s lawyers also claimed that the trial was unfair, as it used a statement the actor had once made in a civil lawsuit. Cosby was released last Wednesday.
