CBS has reportedly picked up a new project from comedian Rob Schneider. According to Deadline.com, the as yet untitled show will come from CBS TV Studios and the Tannenbaum Co.

The show was written by Schneider and fellow Saturday Night Live alum Lew Morton and is based on the comedian’s life. The comedy centers on a solitary guy who marries into a huge Mexican-American family. Reportedly, the project originally landed at CBS in October with a script commitment.

Schneider and his brother John Schneider are producing the show through their From Out of Nowhere Prods. with Morton, Eric and Kim Tannenbaum (Two and a Half Men), who are executive producing.

The series will be Schneider’s first gig on TV in 13 years. The last time he did a series was in the 1996-97 season, NBC’s comedy Men Behaving Badly. The actor has since been focused on films and most recently co-starred in Grown Ups.
