Sinbad plays dad in new Fox sitcom

September 16, 1993|By David Zurawik

Another stand-up comic gets his own show and comes through. Sinbad plays David Bryan, an upwardly mobile bachelor who winds up with two foster kids and a sudden crimp in his bachelor ways.

The kids are 12-year-old L. J. (Willie Norwood) and 5-year-old Zana (Erin Davis), a brother and sister who are about to be split up.

The word is that Fox is having some problems fine-tuning the show. But the pilot looked OK, and it's got a great time slot, after "The Simpsons."

L "The Sinbad Show" premieres tonight at 8:30 p.m. on Fox. ** 1/2
