Rob Schneider to star in domestic laffer
CBS added two more to its comedy pilot roster Friday evening, both of them domestic vehicles. Rob Schneider will front an untitled project about a man who marries into a tight-knit Mexican-American family. Project hails from Schneider and Lew Morton, who exec produce with Eric Tannenbaum and Kim Tannenbaum for CBS TV Studios. “Homegrown” focuses on four generations of a blue-collar Midwestern clan living under the same roof. Multi-cam project comes from comedy vets Jeff Filgo and Jackie Filgo, who wrote and exec produce, and Warner Bros. TV.
