Rob Schneider Inks Netflix Deal for "Real Rob"
copies contracts! For quite some months, Rob Schneider has been teasing his new television series, Real Rob. The show centers around the every day life of the SNL-alum in a Curb Your Enthusiasm-esque fashion. All episodes were produced and directed by the actor, who also wrote each episode alongside his wife, Patricia Azarcoya, and comedian Jamie Lissow. After months of waiting, exciting news about Real Rob has arrived!
Today, the actor revealed that Netflix picked up all 8 episodes and that Real Rob will premiere on the streaming service on December 1st. This will be the actor's return to television after a failed 2012 CBS series, Rob.
Later in December, Netflix will also premiere The Ridiculous 6, the new Adam Sandler comedy that's been gaining a lot of heat for insensitive Native American depictions. Despite, in an interview with Variety, Netflix's chief content officer Ted Sarandos ensured that the film would be of a higher quality than most of Sandler's recent work:
“Ridiculous 6” is every bit as funny as every Adam Sandler movie ever produced and probably the best-looking film he’s made in a decade.
