Adam Sandler’s standard contract clause Rob Schneider is the center of a new CBS comedy series that’s reportedly based on his life, according to Deadline—that is to say, it’s about a “solitary guy who marries into a huge Mexican-American family.” Wait, so Rob Schneider’s life is just as full of high concepts and low-hanging fruit as the average Rob Schneider movie? That must get sort of annoying. Anyway, it will be the first time Schneider has starred in a TV series since 1997’s UK remake Men Behaving Badly, which British people are still probably upset about. Lew Morton, creator of the recent Comedy Central homage to terrible ‘80s sitcoms Big Lake, will write the script, possibly by just hanging out around Rob Schneider and his huge Mexican-American family and taking note of all the hilarious culture clashes that must ensue on a half-hourly basis.
