Netflix Announces Kevin James’ The Crew, Monster Hunting Cast

-

Netflix today announced the new comedy series The Crew, starring Kevin James, and the cast of family film A Babysitter’s Guide to Monster Hunting.

James (The King of Queens, Paul Blart: Mall Cop, True Memoirs of an International Assassin, Grown Ups) also executive produces the new multicam sitcom. Set in a NASCAR garage, James will play the crew chief. When the owner steps down and passes the team off to his daughter, James finds himself at odds with the tech reliant millennials she starts bringing in to modernize the team.

Jeff Lowell (The Ranch, Two and a Half Men, Spin City) will serve as writer, showrunner and executive producer. Jeff Sussman (The King of Queens, Paul Blart: Mall Cop, True Memoirs of an International Assassin, Grown Ups) will serve as an executive producer. Todd Garner (Tag, Isn’t It Romantic, Mortal Kombat) will serve as an executive producer. Matt Summers and Tim Clark will serve as executive producers for NASCAR.

The cast of the family film A Babysitter’s Guide to Monster Hunting includes Tamara Smart, Oona Laurence, Alessio Scalzotto, Indya Moore, Tom Felton and Ian Ho. Directed by Rachel Talalay (Doctor Who, Sherlock, Tank Girl), the film is produced by Ivan Reitman for The Montecito Picture Company and Amie Karp. The executive producers are Naia Cucukov for Walden Media, Tom Pollock for The Montecito Picture Company, and Ilona Herzberg. The screenplay was written by Joe Ballarini based on his novel.

The movie, which starts filming on August 29 in Vancouver, Canada, is based on the first installment of Ballarini’s A Babysitter’s Guide to Monster Hunting book trilogy, published by Katherine Tegen Books, an imprint of Harper Collins Publishers. The series includes A Babysitter’s Guide to Monster Hunting #2: Beasts & Geeks and A Babysitter’s Guide to Monster Hunting #3: Mission to Monster Island.

When first-time babysitter Kelly Ferguson’s charge is kidnapped by the Boogeyman, she discovers a secret society of fierce babysitters who protect children — and an entire world of monsters she will have to fight in order to save him.
