Ok, we were sitting on this and got scooped by the New Yorker Magazine! Anyway, we discovered that comedian/actor Martin Lawrence is about to come back to television with his own new series on CBS! Even though the deal is not yet final, we do hear that the deal is still being worked on but should be finalized soon.
The deal is supposedly going to allow Lawrence to not only star in but also Executive Produce the show. We did hear that former show Executive Bentley Evans (of Love That Girl) is also said to be on board for this show, but we will confirm soon.
If you recall, Lawrence has not starred in a sitcom since he had his own which started on the Fox titled Martin, and ran from 1992 to 1997. From there he landed in many films on the big screen with franchises such as Bad Boys and Big Momma’s House just to name a few. Since his TV series he has only guest starred in a series that he Executive Produces titled Love That Girl! for TV One and the comedy stand up series Martin Lawrence Presents 1st Amendment for Starz.
