Exclusive: TBS Books "Neighbors from Hell," "Are We There Yet?" for June
By The Futon Critic Staff (TFC)

LOS ANGELES (thefutoncritic.com) -- TBS will add two new comedies in June as the cable channel has confirmed its first summer plans.

"Are We There Yet?," based on the Ice Cube/Nia Long-led feature of the same name, will premiere with back-to-back episodes on Wednesday, June 2 at 9:00/8:00c. Bookending the newcomer will be double episodes of "Tyler Perry's House of Payne" and "Tyler Perry's Meet the Browns" at 8:00/7:00c and 10:00/9:00c, respectively. Terry Crews and Essence Atkins star in the small screen incarnation, which is executive produced by Ice Cube - who will also recur as the SWAT officer brother of Atkins's character. Christian Finnegan, Keesha Sharp and Telma Hopkins also star.

Next up is "Neighbors from Hell," an animated comedy about the Hellmans, "a typical, all-American suburban family who just happen to be from Hell." Fox TV Animation and DreamWorks Animation SKG are behind the half-hour, which premieres Monday, June 7 at 10:00/9:00c*. Pam Brady ("South Park") and Mireille Soria ("Madagascar") are executive producing alongside Jeffrey Katzenberg. Leading into the project will be a two-hour block of "Family Guy" repeats, with another "Family Guy" encore following at 10:30/9:30c.

Both "Yet?" and "Hell" have 10-episode orders.

June also marks the return of "A 'Very Funny' Festival: Just for Laughs" with three specials - including "Ellen's Somewhat Special" and "Cedric The Entertainer's Urban Circus" - due the week of June 21-27 (exact dates to be announced).

Still to come: a fourth season of "My Boys," potentially in July or as late as this fall.

* [EDITOR'S NOTE: The show's late-night preview on Friday, June 4 at 11:40/10:40c has subsequently been removed.]
