Rob Schneider Sitcom Officially Picked Up By CBS

CBS has officially picked up the currently untitled Rob Schneider sitcom for a mid season replacement.

Rob portrays a seemingly confirmed bachelor who marries into a tight-knit Mexican-American family. The series co-stars Cheech Marin, Lupe Ontiveros (from "As Good as It Gets") and Claudia Bassols.

Schneider will write and executive-produce, along with Lew Morton, of "Futurama" and "Big Lake." Jamie Widdoes is directing. The series is produced by CBS Television Studios, in association with The Tannenbaum Company, which co-produces "Two and a Half Men." Eric and Kim Tannenbaum will serve as non-writing executive producers.

This will mark Schneider's first regular TV gig since the comedy "Men Behaving Badly," which ran from 1996 to 1997.
