Happily real-life married Niecy Nash just snagged a TV husband for the holidays.


Deadline is reporting that the Reno 911 actress will play wife to Cedric the Entertainer’s Reverend Boyce character in the upcoming TV Land Hot In Cleveland spinoff pilot.


The show will follow Cedric’s small screen "man of the cloth" as he moves to St. Louis to make peace with his wild man past in the eyes of his congregation and family. Hot In Cleveland creator Suzanne Martin wrote the still-untitled pilot along with Cedric. And Cedric will also be the show's executive producer.


Most recently the Clean House host was a voice actor, starring as the character, Gloria, on the animated series, The LeBrons, and Nash also appeared as multiple characters, including one named Patty LaBelle, on the FOX animated series American Dad!


Production for the Cedric the Entertainer pilot is slated to begin December 2.
