Kevin James CBS Comedy Series

Kevin James Returns to CBS as Star of New Family Comedy

King of Queens‘ Kevin James is returning to CBS in a new family comedy that has snagged a 13-episode commitment from the network, TVLine has confirmed.

The sitcom, which will debut during the 2016-17 season, finds James playing a retired cop looking forward to spending more quality time with his wife and three kids, only to discover he faces a tougher time at home than he did on the streets.

In addition to starring, James will write and serve as an exec producer alongside fellow King Of Queens EP Rock Reuben.  Sitcom vet Bruce Helford will serve as showrunner.

  2. Mr. Tran K says:

    Kevin James will always be The King of Queens but he’s going to be The King of Bad News on CBS. Good luck you’re going to need it.

    Just…why?

  4. matty says:

    Somebody better call Leah Remini soon, because she is the only reason KOQ stayed on the air for so long. She carried that show.

  5. Patrick says:

    Who’s got Leah Remni’s number??

  6. Erika says:

    As usual,most of the family comedy show’s has always about the family of five,including (mostly)three children.And none of the today’s popular family comedy/sitcom show’s of the parents of two children.Im a little bit disspointent.

  7. Will says:

    Can they do like ‘Cosby’ did where they brought back Phylicia Rashaad as Bill’s wife and bring Leah Remini? That would definitely bring eyes IMO…
