Regina Hall To Co-Star Opposite Martin Lawrence In CBS Comedy Pilot

Regina Hall To Co-Star Opposite Martin Lawrence In CBS Comedy Pilot

Recall that CBS has given a green light to a still-untitled comedy starring Martin Lawrence.

The project, created by Mike Lisbe and Nate Reger, will star Marty Mar as Ray, “a widowed father of two teenagers who, after losing his job in construction, decides to go to the police academy and become a cop at the age of 46.

Announced last night, Regina Hall has joined Martin as his co-star in the CBS comedy pilot.

Ms Hall will play a character named Lisa, described as “a cute, perky police officer and type – A perfectionist who takes an immediate shine to Ray.

I expect we’ll see the pilot episode some time next season.

They're both very funny people.


She would actually do well in a sitcom based around her. In fact I'm hard pressed to think of an actress that is better suited to the genre. All she would need is clever writing and she could easily carry a show. Her face is very expressive. She's attractive but not in an intimidating way. She has good comic timing. If this show flops just make one where she's the main star.


Love this woman! She deserves a much bigger career. As long as this pilot is better than the one she did with Cedric, it's a move in the right direction.
