Ray Romano on TNT
Ray Romano and Mike Royce, partners in the Emmy-winning "Everybody Loves Raymond," will write and executive-produce a pilot, "Men of a Certain Age," for TNT, the network announced Monday. Romano will also star in the project as a divorced father and one of three longtime friends approaching midlife.
The project is the latest in TNT's new push to expand its weekday prime-time schedule with original scripted dramas. The cable network has green-lighted "Raising the Bar," a Steven Bochco project starring Mark-Paul Gosselaar, Gloria Reuben and Jand Kaczmarek, and "Truth in Advertising," a series by the team behind its biggest hit, "The Closer."
