The Big-Name TV Pilots You'll Never See
Martin Lawrence (untitled CBS comedy)
Martiiiiiiiiin! TV vet
Martin Lawrence almost took a break from making "Big Momma" movies to return to the small screen in a new untitled sitcom for CBS. (Martin Lawrence on CBS... we can't even picture it.) Lawrence would've played a single dad looking for work who decides to enroll in the police academy -- at age 46. Regina Hall and John Amos were all set to co-star, but CBS passed, so we'll never get to see how awkwardly Martin would've fit in on the Tiffany Network.
