Martin Lawrence could be returning to network TV with a new sitcom in the very near future.
What’s up? What’s up? WHAT’S UUUP?!
TVGuide.com reports that CBS is developing two scripts for the comedian, who starred in the hit ’90s sitcom "Martin." This time around fans should expect a more family centric comedy as opposed to the more adult humor that "Martin" was famous for.
One script comes from the mind of "The Bernie Mac Show" creator Larry Wilmore. It focuses on a single man who raises several foster kids with his sister.
The other show, created by Tom Hertz of Adam Sandler’s Happy Madison production company, will feature Martin as a family man. The sitcom will see Martin trying to keep his kid grounded while contending with bourgeois in-laws.
It’s not clear which of the untitled scripts will come out on top, but CBS would like to tape one of show as a pilot to debut later. A decision on which sitcom (if either) makes it to the set is expected in the coming weeks once Martin has a chance to look over the material.
