Niecy Nash & Cedric the Entertainer to Star in TV Land Pilot
Well how great is this!? Two very funny, very hardworking black actors could be getting their own show, together, on TV Land. Yes, on TV Land, not TBS nor BET, thank you very much.
The former star of Reno 911 and former host of The Clean House will play the wife to funnyman Cedric the Entertainer’s Reverend Boyce for the upcoming pilot or the as yet to be titled show. The pilot is said to be a spinoff of the popular show, Hot in Cleveland, which stars Betty White. According to Deadline, Reverend Boyce will make the move back home to St. Louis to work and will deal with the expectations of his congregation vs. his very wild and hilarious past which keeps trying to pop up. Production is to start at the beginning of December. If the pilot is well received, the two could have the show picked up by TV Land and more episode could be ordered for your viewing pleasure! The script of the pilot has been written by Cedric the Entertainer and Hot in Cleveland creator Suzanne Martin.
Sounds good to me! Reminds me of the show Amen from the early ’90s (LOVED THAT!). If you’re not a big fan of Niecy Nash, you should become one, because homegirl is funny! I’ve been a fan since her crazy Reno 911 days and I can attest to that. And we all know that Cedric is too funny for his own good, so if this pilot gets picked up, you know what you will need to do: support with your views!
