Fifteen years after starring in his self-titled hit Fox sitcom, Martin Lawrence’s new TV show is reportedly in the works. According to Vulture, the Death at a Funeral star is in negotiations with CBS for a new sitcom. Once the star decides on a project, he will sign on to both star in and executive produce. Thank goodness; we’ve been yelling “Damn, Gina!” for years, and kids under the age of 16 have no idea what we’re talking about!
Lawrence’s Martin left the air in 1997 after five excellent season of Bruh-Man, Mama Payne and, our personal favorite, Pam. In the meantime Martin has been seen mostly on the big screen in films like Bad Boys II and Welcome Home, Roscoe Jenkins. Won’t it be nice to just slip into a fabulous wig and neon-pink fanny pack rather than a fabulous wig, fanny pack and fat suit a la Big Mommas: Like Father, Like Son? Don’t tell us there is no way Sheneneh will be in Martin’s new show. Let us dream a little while longer.
