TBS is teaming with Joe Roth
and Ice Cube
for Are We There Yet?
, a sitcom starring Terry Crews
(Everybody Hates Chris
) and based on the hit Revolution Studios film of the same name.
TBS has ordered 10 episodes of the new sitcom, slated to premiere in June 2010, with the option for an additional 90 episodes.
The movie "Are We There Yet?," a breakout 2005 hit, told the story of Nick (Ice Cube), a smooth operator who is trying to land a date with Suzanne, a divorcee stuck working out of town over New Year's and miserable because she misses her kids. Nick gallantly offers to make her New Year's wish come true and his own in the process by driving her two children to be reunited with their mom. What Nick doesn't know is that Suzanne's children, whom he's never met, hate every man their mom dates on sight.
The movie grossed more than $82 million at the box office and was followed in 2007 by a sequel, Are We Done Yet?
In the sitcom "Are We There Yet?" Crews will star as Nick, the character Ice Cube played in the film.
