The still unnamed project is also looking for new talent to replace leading ladies Ada Maris, and Nadine Velázquez.

CBS liked the idea for the show and has ordered more episodes, and a few tweaks. Enter Cheech Marin, who will play Fernando (originally to be played by Ugly Betty star Tony Plana), father-in-law to the solitary Rob (played by Schneider).

The series, which is said to air as a mid-season substitute, is based on Shneider’s real life antics of an American man who marries into a large Mexican family.
