TBS Orders Are We There Yet? Series; Crews Takes Cube Role
Terry Crews, Ice Cube
TBS has ordered 10 episodes of a new series based on the big-screen comedy Are We There Yet?
A breakout hit in 2005, Are We There Yet? starred Ice Cube as Nick, a player who tries to woo a divorcee by shuttling around her two hard-to-handle kids. Having grossed $82 million, the comedy begat the 2007 sequel Are We Done Yet? — and apparently the answer was no!
TBS' Are We There Yet? series has Terry Crews (Everybody Hates Chris' dad) stepping in as Nick. Ice Cube, however, will have a recurring role, and he'll be executive-producing the show as well. A June 2010 premiere is being eyed.
TBS has experience in adapting films to series, having done so with Tyler Perry's House of Payne (spun off of the Madea movies) and Meet the Browns (based on the 2008 feature).
