The Neighborhood” is a multi-cam that follows Dave (Greenfield), the nicest guy in the Midwest, who moves his family into a tough neighborhood in L.A. where not everyone appreciates his extreme neighborliness. Cedric the Entertainer stars as Calvin, Dave’s new, opinionated neighbor.

Behrs is perhaps best known for playing the co-lead on the CBS comedy “2 Broke Girls” opposite Kat Dennings. She also starred in one of Fox’s comedy pilots this year–“Culture Clash” from writer  Vali Chandrasekaran and executive producer Lee Daniels–which was ultimately not ordered to series.

Behrs is repped by CAA, Anonymous Content and Hirsch Wallerstein Hayum Matlof and Fishman.

Cedric will also executive produce “The Neighborhood” along with Eric Rhone via their A Bird And A Bear Entertainment. Jim Reynolds serves as writer and executive producer.
