Cheech Marin to be in CBS Sitcom with Rob Schneider

It looks like a Cheech Marin sitcom may actually finally make it to air.   This is because it's actually a Rob Schneider sitcom.  The show has received a request from CBS for another pilot and backup scripts.

The show is written by Schneider and Lew Morton.  It's about Schneider's real life experiences and about his character marrying into a Mexican-American family.  Cheech Marin plays the father-in-law.

Eugenio Derbez plays Rob's wife's uncle. Talk about a small world. Eugenio also starred in the Rick Najera's Broadway play, Latinologues...which Cheech Marin directed.

The show, which is currently untitled, would be a mid-season replacement.
