Sony Pictures has confirmed they're taking a pitch for the development of a new spinoff series for the former hit TV show "Married With Children," based off David Faustino's character Bud Bundy sources confirmed to E! News.

The pitch has been picked up by Sony, who is keeping quiet on the subject for the moment. The company has yet to find a network to hash out a deal for the show, but a pilot for the series has been given the green light if the right network decides to acquire the show.

The former costars attended a reunion Tuesday when the former "Married With Children" star Katey Sagal received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, with Faustino, Ed O'Neill, and Christina Applegate all on hand to support Sagal. There, Applegate alluded to a possible on-screen Bundy reunion.

When E! News caught up with the whole former cast at Katey Sagal's Hollywood Walk of Fame ceremony earlier this week, Christina Applegate teased something might be happening. "We're going to do something with Dave maybe. I don't know if it will be in character," she spilled. "But I don't really know. I don't know what that's going to be. I don't know if I'm allowed to speak on that at all. So I should probably stop talking about it right now!"

Actor Ed O'Neill currently is tied up with his hit TV series "Modern Family," but actress Katey Sagal is currently wrapping up her final season on "Sons of Anarchy. This could free up space for her to return in role on the spinoff show.

"We've talked about [a reunion] every year, but then there are so many pieces that have to be in alignment that for some reason it never happens," Sagal told us Tuesday. "But we love each other. Well, we're all working now, so it's hard to find the time!"

Sony is pitching the show to various networks, but hasn't released information on who the writers or other cast members might be at the moment. "Married With Children" ran on the Fox network from 1987 until 1987, and could potentially produce a large fan base for both older and newer viewers with a spinoff show to return.
