“Hot in Cleveland” Spinoff Series in Development for “It’s Worth What?”

HollywoodNews.com: Cedric the Entertainer not only has his NBC “It’s Worth What?” game show newly on the air this summer. The King of Comedy will also show up as a character on TV Land’s “Hot in Cleveland” next month. And, he reveals, if things go according to plan, that character will land in a spin-off sitcom of his own.

”TV Land got very excited about developing a show based on the character,” says Cedric. He describes his role as a hot R&B singer-turned-preacher — ala several real-life recording stars — who “has a real-world, modern kind of point of view that clashes with that of my father, an old-school minister.” As far as when the show might debut, “We’re in the early stages of development.”

Meanwhile, he has a slate of standup gigs this summer, and the “It’s Worth What?” show — that has already spawned a drinking game wherein participants take a sip each time he utters “Whaaaat?” Cedric is well aware “It’s Worth What?” faces stiff competition (including Chef Gordon Ramsay), but points out, “With our show, people can have fun playing along. Everyone thinks they know the prices of things, but everyone gets surprised.” Items from Roy Rogers’ taxidermist-treated Trigger to a flying saucer home are the big lure, he feels. “We have plenty of fun stuff ahead – items that are quite amazing.”
