LOS ANGELES – TV Land is looking at Cedric the Entertainer as a series star.
The channel said Monday it’s developing a possible spin-off of its “Hot in Cleveland” sitcom to star the actor-comedian.
Cedric’s character, a minister, is to be introduced when “Hot in Cleveland” begins a new season June 15. The sitcom stars Valerie Bertinelli, Jane Leeves, Wendie Malick and Betty White, whose characters will mix it up with Cedric.
TV Land said whether the proposed, untitled series gets a green light depends on the pilot script to be written by Cedric and “Hot in Cleveland” creator Suzanne Martin.
