Martin Lawrence is in the development swim at CBS this pilot season.
The Eye and CBS TV Studios have closed a talent deal with Lawrence that calls for the net and studio to develop a show for the comic.
Lawrence hasn’t done a TV series since his Fox laffer “Martin” ended its five-year run in 1997. His recent pic credits include “Big Mommas: Like Father, Like Son,” “Death at a Funeral” and “College Road Trip.”
He’s repped by UTA and the Collective.
