Martin Lawrence could be making his way back to television real soon.
CBS picked up a new comedy pilot staring the former sitcom actor. According to The Hollywood Reporter , he’s set to play the role of a widower and father of two teens.
After losing his construction job, he decides to enroll into the police academy to become a cop at the age of 46.
Produced by “$#*! My Dad Says” duo, Mike Lisbe and Nate Reger, the show is another test project for the pair. A previous show, “How to be a Gentleman” was pulled shortly after airing this season.
If Lawrence’s show is picked up, this would be his first return to television since his hit show “Martin” ended in 1997.
