‘Kevin Can Wait’ Meets ‘King of Queens’

by Kristin Craik  |  08.25.2016

Kevin James promotes upcoming new show Kevin Can Wait by talking to his former-self/character Doug Heffernan from King of Queens in a series of show promos.

Discussing different ways Heffernan could be involved in the show, the promos make fun of themselves by aligning the similarities between the two characters.

The promos are tongue-in-cheek, even having Heffernan ask a critical question that can be applied to both series:

“You got a wife so hot on this one, it’s kind of hard to believe?” asks Heffernan.

“Oh yeah!” Kevin answers.

James stars in Kevin Can Wait as a newly retired police officer looking forward to his carefree retirement, only to find his home-life has more challenges than expected.

Kevin Can Wait premieres on CBS on September 19.
