‘Kevin Can Wait’ ordered to series at CBS for 2016-17
CBS has officially put out a series order for Kevin James’ previously untitled new comedy, “Kevin Can Wait,” the network announced.
The series stars James as a recently retired police officer looking forward to living out the rest of his days in a care- (and crime-) free life, only to realize that he may face more challenges at home than he ever did as a cop on the streets. Erinn Hayes, Gary Valentine, Taylor Spreitler, Mary-Charles Jones, and more are also set to star.
“Kevin Can Wait” had previously received a series commitment from CBS and Sony Pictures Television late last year. Bruce Helford will serve as showrunner on the series with Rock Reuben, James, Jeff Sussman and Andy Fickman signed on as executive producers.
