According to Deadline, the order is for eight episodes.
The untitled project, which Schneider and Lew Morton co-wrote, is based on the actor's real life. Schneider plays Rob, a bachelor who has recently married into a very close-knit Mexican-American family.
Claudia Bassols plays Schneider's wife, Maggie, and Diana Maria Riva plays his mother-in-law, Rosa. Cheech Marin plays his father-in-law.
This is Schneider's first TV series gig since 'Men Behaving Badly' during the 1996 TV season.
Robert De Niro's 'The 2-2' will also debut mid-season on CBS.
