Rob Schneider’s got a new show!

The SNL alum produced, directed and stars in comedy series Real Rob! with his real-life wife, Mexican television producer Patricia Azarcoya. The show is an "exaggerated, yet brutally honest" autobiographical look at the comedian’s life and career.

"Rob lives in two worlds, one where he’s the most important person on set, and the other, where he’s the third most important person in a three-person household, after his two-year-old daughter, Miranda, and his younger Mexican wife, Patricia," reads a release from Tricorn Films & Television, who has begun shopping the show internationally. "Patricia doesn’t quite grasp Rob’s level of fame, because when he was getting his first movie role, she was getting her first tricycle."

The comedian enlisted fellow SNL stars David Spade and Norm Macdonald, as well as George Lopez, to guest star in the show’s first season. He self-financed the new series after CBS decided not to pick up his 2012 sitcom Rob for a second season.

"Eleven million viewers is not enough for them, it’s enough for me," Schneider said in a statement. "I’ll do it myself."

The second season of Real Rob! starts production this summer.
