Kevin James' New CBS Sitcom Casts Taylor Spreitler as 'Radicalized' Spawn

Look out Kevin James — your new TV daughter’s got a mind of her own.

Melissa & Joey‘s Taylor Spreitler has joined CBS’ straight-to-series Untitled Kevin James Project as Kendra, James’ former people-pleasing daddy’s girl who has been radicalized by college and now has her own independence and point of view.

The multi-cam sitcom, which received a 13-episode order from CBS and is slated to debut during the 2016-17 season, finds King of Queens vet 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.

    I liked her in Melissa and Joey, and can see how she would play off of Kevin James’ antics well. I’m looking forward to this.

    Taylor Spreitler is AMAZING! Can’t wait to see her co-starring with Kevin James!

    The return of Kevin James to TV would be amazing…we need to save him from all of the Adam Sandler films he’s been making lately.

    Seriously though, the premise sounds interesting, and I miss a good ol’ comedy that centers on a singular family, instead of several units of a larger family or a group of friends and neighbors.
