Jul 15, 2009  •  Post A Comment

Using the formula it developed with success for Tyler Perry shows, Debmar-Mercury and TBS are making a TV series of the 2005 film "Are We There Yet?"

The star of the film, Ice Cube, will have a recurring role in the sitcom, and his Cube Vision will produce the show. Debmar-Mercury will distribute.

Intially 10 episodes have been ordered, with an option to add 90 more. Ali LeRoi, the Emmy-winning showrunner of "The Chris Rock Show," will be the showrunner on "Are We There Yet."

The film was from Revolution Studios, and Revolution’s Joe Roth will be one of the executive producers, along with Ice Cube, Matt Alvarez (Ice Cube’s partner in Cube Vision) and LeRoi.
Starring in the role of Nick that Ice Cube played in the movie will be Terry Crews.

“When we set out to expand on the television comedy model that the amazing Tyler Perry has turned into a runaway success at TBS, we knew we had to be in business with Ice Cube, a cultural icon who can do it all: an acclaimed hip-hop artist, film phenomenon, actor, writer, director and producer,” said Debmar-Mercury Co-President Mort Marcus in a statement.

Added Co-President Ira Bernstein, “To be back with TBS again and have a dream team of creative partners like Ice Cube, Joe Roth, Matt Alvarez and Ali LeRoi attached to this project, plus a breakout star in Terry Crews, this show has all the elements to be a major hit.”
