Martin Lawrence Back in Comedy with ‘Love That Girl’ on TV One
Well it will be behind the scenes but Martin Lawrence is headed back to television with a new comedy he will executive produce on TV One, the African American cable television network. He’s hooking up with writer/director Bentley Kyle Evans who worked on ‘The Jamie Foxx Show’ and ‘Martin’, the comedy which Martin Lawrence starred in and wrote for five years.
Tatyana Ali who was in ‘The Fresh Prince of Bel Air’ and ‘TV One Access’ will star in the new comedy ‘Love That Girl’ and an initial four episodes were shot in five days on what is called a shoestring budget in the TV business. If the show gets decent rating TV One says it will put in an order for 13 to 26 more episodes.
R & B singer Raphael Saadiq is also part of the production as one of the executive producers.
