CBS Orders ‘Kevin Can Wait’ Starring Kevin James and Erinn Hayes
Your prayers have been answered: Kevin James just got a new CBS sitcom. According to The Wrap, the network has given a 13-episode series order to Kevin Can Wait, the previously untitled family comedy announced back in October. James will star as a retired police officer who “looks forward to spending more time with his wife and kids, only to find that the retired life is not as easy as he thought.” Childrens Hospital alum Erinn Hayes will play his wife Donna, “who has had to hold the family together before her husband’s retirement.” According to The Wrap, Hayes’s character has been married to Kevin for 20 years, so going by their real ages (Hayes is 39, James is 51), that means Kevin’s character married Donna when he was 31 and she was 19. Nothing questionable about that!
