ETonline has exclusively learned that Cheech Marin is headed back to television on TBS' Do It Yourself.
The pilot, which is aiming for pick-up this fall, revolves around a laid-off math teacher forced into the blue-collar world when he gets a job at Home Time, a big-box home-supply store. His co-workers are played by Bill Engvall, Ryan McPartlin and Melora Hardin, who plays their boss.
On the show, Marin will play Perez, an offbeat Home Time employee who spends his days making keys and his nights preparing for the apocalypse (he's a survivalist).
Iconic for his role in 1978's Up In Smoke, Marin was previously a series regular on the short-lived series Rob and the very long-lived Nash Bridges.
