Flavor Flav Gets Another TV Show! Greeaaaat...

MyNetworkTV has ordered 13 episodes of Under One Roof, a new half-hour comedy starring Flavor Flav. The series is scheduled to debut in the Spring of 2008.

"Under One Roof will be a hilarious addition to the MyNetworkTV lineup," said MyNetworkTV president Greg Meidel.

"I am real excited about my new sitcom Under one Roof. I want to thank MyNetworkTV for believing in your boy because we are about to blow this out of the water. I am about to take MyNetworkTV and make it MY network," said Flav.

In the series, Flav plays Calvester Hill, an ex-convict that moves in with his wealthy, conservative brother, Walter (Kelly Perine). Calvester subsequently turns the Hill family's life upside down, parading his old prison cronies through the house; teaching his nephew Walter Jr. to be a gangsta rapper; and butting heads with Walter's snooty wife, Ashley.

Executive Producers, Claude Brooks and Darryl J. Quarles added, "It can't get much better than working on a comedy with a personality like Flavor Flav. This type of program is a perfect fit for his unique brand of humor and we are proud to be bringing it to MyNetworkTV."

YAY! I'm so thrilled and definitely looking forward to this one!

NOT! But I'm sure the ratings will be just as strong as they were for his Flavor Of Love series on VH1.

    Is it me, or does this sound somehow familiar? Almost like the Fresh Prince grew up (to no good, obviously) and moved in with Carlton...?

    @ Wendy - I thought the exact same thing as well, but just didn't mention it. The old "fish out of water" premise.
