Damn Gina!

Well... the upside is that maybe this could mean that we won't get anymore Big Momma movies; not that I was expecting one anyway, since the last one didn't do as well as the those before it.

Mr Martin Lawrence is reportedly "deep into negotiations" with CBS to return to the small screen and star in a comedy series of his choosing. He will also executive produce the new show; though no details are yet available on what this series will be about.

CBS isn't exactly heavy on the diversity when it comes to its programming line-up; then again neither are any of the other networks. So a splash of Marty, especially if the series centers around him, would make things a little more colorful...

Just stay away from the fat suits, makeup and wigs Marty... no Big Momma; no Sheneneh either.

    I thought that was going to be a joke about Love That Girl. If he gets a new show, he better have some better, original material so it doesn't suck like LTG.

    I have a TV pitch for Martin. The show would be called The Lawrence's. This show is set in the same apartment building as the old show.

    In this show you have all the characters living in the building that Martin use to play. But this time they are all different people.

    Someone playing Sha Nay Nay, Roscoe, Momma etc.

    Martin made a lot of loot from the radio station, divorced Gina and is now owns and manages the property.

    He has still got to deal with Sha nay nay, Roscoe, his Momma and all the other strange characters.

    I would love to be a writer on the show. Although I am sure they would be all white.
