The Crew: Kevin James to star in Netflix sitcom
Staff Reporter | On 05, Sep 2019
Kevin James is gearing up to star in The Crew, a new NASCAR sitcom for Netflix.
Set in a NASCAR garage, James will play 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 modernize the team.
James, who has starred in The King of Queens and True Memoirs Of An International Assassin as well as Grown Ups, is no stranger to either sitcoms or the streaming giant. As well as taking the lead role in The Crew, he will also executive produce the multicam series.
Jeff Lowell (The Ranch, Two and a Half Men, Spin City) will serve as writer, showrunner and executive producer, with Jeff Sussman (The King of Queens, Paul Blart; Mall Cop, True Memoirs Of An International Assassin and Grown Ups) also on board as an executive producer, alongside Todd Garner (Tag, Isn’t It Romantic, Mortal Kombat).
Matt Summers and Tim Clark will serve as executive producers for NASCAR.
