Duane Martin and Sheryl Lee Ralph have joined Tia Mowry in the Nick at Nite family comedy pilot Instant Mom.
It was roughly 2 months (in July) after it was announced that Mowry would not be returning to BET's hit scripted series The Game next season, that Nickelodeon snatched her up for its nighttime cable network (which targets adult viewers), to star in the new scripted family comedy sitcom.
Creadted by Aaron Kaplan’s Kapital Entertainment, and written by Warren Bell and Jessica Butler, Instant Mom (which is based on the real lives of Bell and Butler) centers on:
… a 25-year-old party girl (Mowry) who trades in Cosmos for carpools when she marries an older man with kids.
Duane Martin will play the older gentlemen with kids; Sheryl Lee Ralph will play Mowry's mother, and rounding out the starring cast will be Sydney Park, Tylen Williams and Damarr Calhoun, who'll play Martin's character's 3 kids.
