*TV Guide is reporting that Martin Lawrence is in negotiations with CBS for a deal that would have the actor and comedian star in and executive-produce his own series for the network.

Lawrence started his TV run on the Fox sitcom, “Martin,” which ran from 1992 to 1997. He then moved to the big screen for such film franchises as “Bad Boys” and “Big Momma’s House.”

He currently executive-produces the BET original series “Love That Girl!”
