"Are We There Yet?" to TV
The Ice Cube-starring movie "Are We There Yet?" is making its way to the small screen as a comedy series for TBS. Under the model used for Tyler Perry's sitcoms "House of Payne" and "Meet the Browns," TBS has ordered 10 episodes of "Are We There Yet?" from distributor Debmar-Mercury, with an option for an additional 90 episodes.
The series, slated to premiere in June 2010, will star Terry Crews ("Everybody Hates Chris") in the central role of Nick, played in the movie by Ice Cube.
The 2005 movie "Are We There Yet?" centered on Nick, a smooth operator who, trying to land a date with divorcee Suzanne, offers to drive her two children to be reunited with their mom. Ice Cube will have a recurring role on the series.
