Martin Lawrence Just Turned 57, Shared Sweet Birthday Post With His Fans And Friends

Martin Lawrence has had a career that just about anyone would be envious of.

Martin Lawrence, Tisha Campbell, Tichina Arnold, Carl Anthony Payne II and other guests to be named later will be part of the reunion special, celebrating Lawrence's classic Fox sitcom, which premiered in August 1992. The special, which is scheduled to tape on Sunday and premiere later this year, will be hosted by comedian and actor Affion Crockett. "To be able to sit here 30 years later with this amazing cast that has had such an impact on pop culture is truly a blessing," Lawrence tells EW. "I am always humbled that the fans still want more of the show and its characters. I am looking forward to the reunion special." The reunion will, however, be without Thomas Mikal Ford, who died in 2016 and co-creator John Bowman, who died last month. As EW notes, Martin ended in a bad place in 1997 when Campbell sued Lawrence and the producers of the show for "repeated and escalating sexual harassment, sexual battery, verbal abuse and related threats." Lawrence and Campbell later reconciled and are now "in a good place." BET CEO Scott Mills calls Martin "one of the most beloved sitcoms in our community, both because it is hugely entertaining and because it played a pivotal role in changing the narrative of Black voices in entertainment and in culture through the portrayal of young, ambitious Black leads and healthy Black relationships. Decades later, that representation is still just as important, which is why we're so excited to honor a series that put Black culture front and center on our platform that embraces Black culture everyday."

Martin Lawrence sets TV return, revisiting his standup roots in a dark comedy series

In his first regular TV role in seven years, Lawrence will star in in the English-language adaptation of the acclaimed Israeli HOT original series Nehama from Topic Studios. Tropic "tells the story of a happily married father of five (Lawrence) who quits his suffocating job in tech to chase his original love of stand-up comedy," per Variety. "When his wife suddenly dies, he must decide whether he should pursue his dream and risk losing his kids — who are lost without their mother. Described as 'hilarious, intelligent, and raw,' the series examines what it means 'to seek pleasure and find comfort in the face of tragedy and tackles the timeless challenge of "wanting to have it all" from a uniquely male perspective, with some twists along the way.'" Aside from his legendary 1990s sitcom Martin, Lawrence's only other TV series regular role was with Kelsey Grammer on FX's Partners, a comedy about two Chicago lawyers from vastly different backgrounds that lasted one season in summer 2014. Nehama was created by Reshef Levi and Tomer Shani. "Nehama has heart and real-life complications that drew me to the project,” Lawrence said, announcing the new project and its focus on a contemporary African American family. “I am looking forward to getting back to TV, and this is a perfect fit.”
