*Martin Lawrence is returning to the small screen.
The actor, who has been busy doing feature film projects including “Big Momma’s House” and its sequels, has inked a talent deal with CBS and its studio, CBS Television Studios, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The deal calls for the network and studio to develop a show for the comedian to star in.
A series TV gig would mark Lawrence’s first regular small screen work since he starred as Martin Payne – and assorted other characters – on Fox’s Martin.
His big-screen credits also include the Bad Boys films, Death at a Funeral and Wild Hogs.
