Spanish actress Claudia Bassols and Cheech Martin have joined the cast of Rob Schneider’s new TV venture.
Deadline has reported that CBS has approved filming of 8 episodes of the new –still unnamed, Rob Schneider show, after Shneider and associate Lew Morton redid the pilot having replaced some of the cast.
Spanish actress Claudia Bassols will now be Schneider’s wife, while Diana Maria Riva will be his mother in law.
Cheech Martin will play Schneider’s conservative father in law.
Only two actors from the previous pilot were chosen to reprise their roles for the second one: Eugenio Derbez, who plays Bassol’s uncle and Lupe Ontiveros, who stars as her grandmother.
The series will hopefully start airing in early 2012.
