Ray Romano Will Return to TV

According to Variety:

Ray Romano is plotting a return to the small screen via TNT.

Comic thesp has teamed with “Everybody Loves Raymond” scribe-producer Mike Royce to create “Men of a Certain Age,” a one-hour comedic drama in which Romano will also star. In a rare move, TNT is going straight to pilot on the script, which was written outside of the normal development process.

“Men” will revolve around three men in their 40s, friends since college who now find themselves going through midlife crises of various sorts. Project is described as akin to “Sideways” in tone.

Romano and Royce created “Men” together and will both serve as exec producers. TNT is producing the pilot itself, with no studio currently attached.

If greenlit to series, “Men” will be Romano’s first regular series gig since “Raymond” left the air in May 2005.
