Rob SchneiderRob Schneider's CBS comedy is a-go for midseason placement.

According to Deadline, the order is for eight episodes.

The untitled project, which Schneider and Lew Morton co-wrote, is based on the actor's real life. Schneider plays Rob, a bachelor who has recently married into a very close-knit Mexican-American family.

Claudia Bassols plays Schneider's wife, Maggie, and Diana Maria Riva plays his mother-in-law, Rosa. Cheech Marin plays his father-in-law.

This is Schneider's first TV series gig since 'Men Behaving Badly' during the 1996 TV season.

Robert De Niro's 'The 2-2' will also debut mid-season on CBS.

Are they serious? WHAT THE HECK ARE THEY THINKING?!! A SHOW ABOUT A CLOSE KNIT-MEXICAN AMERICAN FAMILY?. Yet NO REAL MEXICAN AMERICANS on the show?? OK. With exception of Euginio Dervez (Mexican) and Lupe and Cheech who are first generation Mexican American Latinos. Once again another so called “HISPANIC/Latino show” But NOT REALLY. I guarentee you it wont be on the air too long before its cancelled for the lack of Latino ratings. Sounds to me like another typical lame recipe for Hollywood to say…”See we gave Latino projects a chance and no one wants to watch them”. Ok so he marries a “SPANISH wife?!”(Claudia Bassols) NOT A MEXICAN AMERICAN?? umm different country folks! different accent! And to add: someone with minimal to no comedy background? how does that sound believable? how are WE MEXICAN AMERICANS GOING TO RELATE TO THAT? how are we going to BELIEVE THAT? “no senor”. I DONT THINK SO. We’ll go back to watching our telenovelas at UNIVISION instead. As always!. When is Hollywood going to get past the stereotypes? huh? When are they going to stop giving away our jobs to these ” so called ethnic anglo manufactured modelly type actors?” instead of, in this case, a REAL AUTHENTIC MEXICAN AMERICAN ACTOR. If its going to be an unknown, they should of given it to an up & coming REAL MEXICANA FROM EAST L.A. (for example) A true CHICANA from the heart. Im just sayin. And at least they could of matched up the family a little more so there is a resemblence, not even that! LOL! they do not look related at all!. All in all yes I’m afraid that CBS is mucking things up this time. “Hay Dios Mio! “QUE HORROR!!” A real good Mexican American show? add real Mexican American comedy writers to the mix and a “REAL MEXICAN American Cast” who can relate to spanglish slang, pinatas, sunday mass, carne asadas, posadas, mariachis, quincieneras, champurrado, serenatas, pan dulce, carnitas and so forth. helloo0oOoO!. Rob, no disrespect, your work is good & its a GREAT concept! but you got it ALLLL wrong “hermano”, sorry. Your real wife is MEXICAN. hmmm perhaps someone like her possibly?. And “porfavor”..an older mother in law please! Re: (Diana Maria Riva) I’m sure she’s great but GEE WIZ!! I’m just saying. This is coming from a 25 year old first generation Mexican American.
