Having a career spanning over 50 years, William Henry “Bill” Cosby Jr. is one of the most influential forces in pop culture. He’s responsible for creating the multi-award winning, culture-shifting sitcom The Cosby Show, which is arguably one of the most significant series in American history. The humorist has given us positive, popular cartoons such as Little Bill and Fat Albert, the sitcom A Different World, written numerous books, and recorded a plethora of musical and comedy albums. In 2014, allegations came to light from more than a dozen women that the comedian had sexually assaulted them. While the statute of limitations had passed for most of the cases, meaning Cosby would not face criminal charges, the allegations seriously damaged his reputation and led to NBC and Netflix canceling pending deals.
