Cedric pilot inserts Hall in the family
EmptyRegina Hall has been tapped to star opposite Cedric the Entertainer in the comedian's family pilot for ABC. Ken Whittingham has come aboard to direct the pilot, which is produced by ABC Studios.
The multicamera project centers on a family man (Cedric) who always has been the proud breadwinner and has difficulty adjusting when his wife's (Hall) hobby turns into a multimillion-dollar enterprise.
Hall, who co-starred on Fox's "Ally McBeal," has appeared in such features as "The Honeymooners" and the "Scary Movie" franchise.
The Cedric comedy marks Whittingham's first pilot. The helmer, who has directed episodes of "Entourage," "The Office" and "Everybody Hates Chris," is repped by CAA.
