Cedric the Entertainer's ABC Pilot Lands Two More Actors

Charles Malik Whitfield (The Guardian) and Melissa Peterman (Reba) round out the cast of Cedric the Entertainer's untitled family pilot for ABC, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The project centers on a family man (Cedric) who has always been the proud breadwinner and has difficulty adjusting when his wife's (Regina Hall) hobby turns into a multimillion-dollar enterprise.

Whitfield will play Thomas "The Wiz" Osgood, Cedric's oldest friend, whose poor judgment always seems to lead to trouble for the duo. Peterman is set to play the wife of Cedric's new neighbor (Peter Mackenzie).
