Cedric The Entertainer Lands In New CBS Comedy Pilot Titled ‘Welcome to the Neighborhood’

Posted Mar 2, 2018
Cedric the Entertainer has signed on to star in and executive produce the CBS multi-camera comedy pilot “Welcome to the Neighborhood”.

Formerly known as “Here Comes the Neighborhood,” the project follows the nicest guy in the Midwest, who moves his family into a tough neighborhood in L.A. where not everyone appreciates his extreme neighborliness.

Cedric will play Calvin, the next door neighbor to the Johnson family, whom he regards with disdain and as a pack of interlopers. Described as a natural contrarian, acerbic, even downright misanthropic, Calvin thinks these people will upset the delicate balance that exists in his neighborhood. He joins previously announced cast members Sheaun McKinney and Marcel Spears, who will play Calvin’s sons.

Cedric will executive produce with Eric Rhone under their A Bird and A Bear Entertainment banner.
