Former sitcom and comedy star Kevin James is set to lead the multi-camera NASCAR comedy series “The Crew” which Netflix has handed out a series order for.
Penned by Jeff Lowell (“The Ranch,” “Two and a Half Men”), the story is set in a NASCAR garage and stars James as the crew chief. When the owner steps down and passes the team off to his daughter, James finds himself at odds with the tech-reliant millennials she starts bringing in to modernise the team.
Lowell executive produces and serves as showrunner. Jeff Sussman, Todd Garner, Matt Summers and Tim Clark also executive produce. James will next be seen playing a villain in the action thriller “Becky”.
