If you miss Phil Rosenthal’s sense of humor, you won’t have to wait too long to get it back. The enormously successful creator and executive producer of CBS’ Everybody Loves Raymond is finally releasing Exporting Raymond, a documentary based on his experience with a Russian broadcaster that bought the sitcom’s format.

Apparently, it wasn’t all fun and games for Rosenthal (like when a Russian executive who could double as a hit man tells the uber-producer that his sitcom wasn’t funny). The nerve! Didn’t Rosenthal show him his Emmy?

The movie opens April 29.
