The projects marks Schneider's first series regular TV role in 13 years. After a four-year stint on SNL, the comedian starred on NBC's remake of the British sitcom, Men Behaving Badly, which was canceled in 1997 after two seasons.
Schneider, who has most recently been seen in such Adam Sandler films as Grown Ups and Bedtime Stories, will produce the new show with his brother, John Schneider. Lew Morton (SNL), and Eric and Kim Tannenbaum will executive-produce, and Morton will also write the project.
