Duane Martin, Sheryl Lee Ralph Join Tia Mowry In Nick At Nite Family Comedy Pilot 'Instant Mom'

Duane Martin and Sheryl Lee Ralph have joined Tia Mowry in the Nick at Nite family comedy pilot Instant Mom.

It was roughly 2 months (in July) after it was announced that Mowry would not be returning to BET’s hit scripted series The Game next season, that Nickelodeon snatched her up for its nighttime cable network (which targets adult viewers), to star in the new scripted family comedy sitcom. 

Creadted by Aaron Kaplan’s Kapital Entertainment, and written by Warren Bell and Jessica Butler, Instant Mom (which is based on the real lives of Bell and Butler) centers on:

… a 25-year-old party girl (Mowry) who trades in Cosmos for carpools when she marries an older man with kids.

Duane Martin will play the older gentlemen with kids; Sheryl Lee Ralph will play Mowry’s mother, and rounding out the starring cast will be Sydney Park, Tylen Williams and Damarr Calhoun, who’ll play Martin’s character’s 3 kids.

No ETA yet…

And Duane Martin was recently replaced with Michael Boatwright as Tia's husband.


I'm glad to that Tia has a new TV show and it's gonna be different from her character on The Game. I will be watching. It is also gonna be good to see Sheryl Lee Ralph to play someone else's mama. She played Brandy's step mother on Moesha, Tia's mother and also Jennifer Hudson's mother on the second season of the show Smash which comes on in 2013.

Hopefully this will turned out better than Reed Between the Lines. The chemistry has to be rightg especially with the children. Im happy for Tia and Duane. Ill be checking for this.


I am excited for Tia, although I question whether she will have chemistry with Duane. I'm trying to picture them as a couple, and I don't know.
