Method Man, Redman Move Into Fox's House

Fox is rapping the holidays with an early pickup of a comedy starring Method Man and Redman. Based on an idea by Method Man, the untitled project will star the two rapper/actors as themselves as they move into a big house in a predominantly white New Jersey suburb. The good times are rolling for the twosome, who wreak havoc upon the neighborhood until Method Man's mom moves in with them and straightens things out.

"It is a very traditional fish-out-of-water story, but Meth and Red really bring a lot of charm and their particular brand of charisma to it and make it very appealing," Regency TV senior VP if comedy development Erin Simon Berenson said.

Frequent collaborators Method Man and Redman have appeared together in such movies as "How High" and "Scary Movie 3." The two also are attached to topline an untitled comedy at New Line Cinema described as an urban version of "The Producers" and Miramax's remake of the South Korean comedy "Jail Breakers."

Method Man, of Wu-Tang Clan fame, next appears in MGM's comedy "Soul Plane" and Miramax's "My Baby's Mama."

Yep, yep, another show to perpetuate the idea of Blacks being "fish-outta-water" when it comes to simple things like table manners, maintaining checking accounts, and holding down jobs.

I, for one, can't wait for this. This might set us so far back that I might have to open up the Underground Railroad again.

I cosign with Miss Rocketta :haha:

I read some place (probly Black Voices) that the only reason the network make show like this one is cuz they think that's all black folk would watch. :rolleyes:
