Ice Cube Movie To Become TV Series
According to Variety.com:
Just like it did with the Tyler Perry comedies “House of Payne” and “Meet the Browns,” TBS will initially pick up 10 episodes of “Are We There Yet,” with an option for 90 more. Show is expected to launch in June 2010.
Ali LeRoi (“Everybody Hates Chris”) has signed on to write the laffer, which comes from Revolution’s Joe Roth, as well as Cube Vision’s Ice Cube and Matt Alvarez.
Cube Vision will produce, while Debmar-Mercury, which distributes the Perry sitcoms, is also the distributor behind “Are We There Yet?”
“We are confident that ‘Are We There Yet?’ will fit extremely well within TBS’ popular and diverse comedy lineup,” said TBS/TNT/TCM exec VP and head of programming Michael Wright.
LeRoi, Roth, Cube and Alvarez will exec produce; Cube is also expected to occasionally appear in the series – although not in the same role he played in the movie and its sequel, “Are We Done Yet?”
Instead, Terry Crews, who earned raves as the father in “Everybody Hates Chris,” will reunite with LeRoi to star in the new show as Nick, a single man who starts dating a young divorcee with two kids.
