Martin Lawrence New Sitcom Casting Underway

by on April 30, 2012

CBS has ordered the pilot for a show created by and starring Martin Lawrence.

According to EW:

“The comedy pilot stars Lawrence as a 46-year-old man who decides to take on a new career as a cop after the death of his wife leaves him to raise two teenagers on his own.”

Only around 2/3rds of pilots make to to the air in the fall. CBS greenlights about 16 pilots every year, the highest number of any television network.

Is Martin  Lawrence + comedy television a formula for guaranteed long term success?
