If you have been suffering from Rob Schneider withdrawal (and who could blame you?), fear no more. The equivalent of Schneider heroin, or at least methadone, is here.
Uh-oh. I just read the overview. It’s semi-autobiographical. He’s going to play “an exaggerated version of himself in Real Rob. It will poke fun at his flops, and play out as a single-camera documentary-style narrative. I’m not sure Rob Schneider commands that sort of verite approach, but that could be the joke, which is, admittedly, pretty funny.
Schneider is looking towards cable outlets, so don’t be surprised if this thing is a little edgy. But do be surprised if a network like HBO snags it. I’m thinking it’s more likely to be USA.
