Rob Schneider to headline CBS comedy pilot
Deuce Bigalow, er, Rob Schneider will headline a sitcom pilot just ordered by CBS. The untitled laugher from Lew Morton (Futurama) will feature Schneider – last seen in Grown Ups – as a confirmed bachelor who marries into a tight-knit Mexican-American family. Schneider also helped to write the pilot that’s executive produced by Eric and Kim Tannenbaum.
CBS also picked up another comedy pilot on Friday called Homeground, which focuses on four generations of a blue-collar midwestern family living under the same roof. It’s from writers Jackie Filgo and Jeff Filgo (The New Adventures of Old Christine).
