Funny you should ask. We’re actually working on it.
It’s not there yet but hopefully we can get it happening.
She also stated that she felt like “Friends’ was inspired by ‘Living Single’.

Living Single was a sitcom that aired for five seasons on the Fox network from August 29, 1993, to January 1, 1998. Throughout its run, Living Single became one of the most popular African-American sitcoms of its era, ranking among the top five in African-American ratings in all five seasons. The series was produced by Yvette Lee Bowser’s company, Sister Lee, in association with Warner Bros.
The series focused on two different households in one brownstone, one shared by a trio of independent women and another shared by a pair of male friends who have known each other since they spent their youth in Cleveland, Ohio. In the first apartment, Khadijah James (Queen Latifah), a hard-working editor and publisher of the fictional urban independent monthly Flavor, lived with her sweet, but naive cousin, Synclaire James (Kim Coles), an aspiring actress who worked as Khadijah’s receptionist and has an affinity for Troll dolls; and her childhood friend from East Orange, New Jersey, Regina “Régine” Hunter (Kim Fields), an image-conscious, boutique buyer who was in a constant search for a well-to-do man to spend her life with (and spend his money). Later in the series, Régine became a costume assistant for the soap opera Palo Alto. When the show was canceled, she became a wedding planner and left the apartment to move in with her fiance, Dexter Knight (Don Franklin). Maxine “Max” Shaw (Erika Alexander), a sharp-tongued attorney and Khadijah’s best friend from their college days at Howard University, frequently stopped by to share her unique insights; keep them entertained by sharing her day; to make sure that the girls’ refrigerator isn’t overstocked; and to start trouble with Kyle.
