Cedric Entertains ABC
ABC joins other networks in hedging its bets in case of a writers strikeLOS ANGELES --
But now the network is hedging its bets, giving a pilot order to a multi-camera comedy from ABC Studios starring Cedric the Entertainer, thus bearing fruit from the talent development deal brokered last fall.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the show is about a man who finds his role as family breadwinner usurped when his wife's hobby snowballs into a multimillion-dollar business.
The script is from Rock Reuben and Michael Soccio ("The King of Queens"). Cedric and his manager Eric Rhone will co-executive producer along with the writers.
