Kevin James' CBS Sitcom Gets Title

Somewhere, Warren Beatty is having a good chuckle over the name of Kevin James‘ new CBS sitcom. The formerly untitled project, which was ordered to series earlier this year, will be called Kevin Can Wait, TVLine has learned.

The multi-cam sitcom finds James playing a retired cop looking forward to spending more quality time with his wife Donna (played by Childrens Hospital‘s Erinn Hayes) and three kids (including Melissa & Joey‘s Taylor Spreitler), only to discover he faces a tougher time at home than he did on the streets.

The cast also includes Mary-Charles Jones, James Digiacomo, Ryan Cartwright, Lenny Venito, Leonard Earl Howze and Gary Valentine.

James will star in and executive-produce Kevin Can Wait alongside Bruce Helford, Rock Reuben, Jeff Sussman and Andy Fickman. The comedy is slated to debut during the 2016-17 season.
