TV Guide Magazine gave actress Erinn Hayes a camera to document the fun on the set of her hit CBS comedy 'Kevin Can Wait.'

"A comedian, producer, writer and Emmy-nominated actor, James is an established and well-respected staple in entertainment today. Discovered at the 1996 Montreal Comedy Festival -- and unwittingly taking the first step in what would become an illustrious career -- he signed a network development deal which lead to the creation of his 1998 CBS smash-hit The King of Queens," a press release noted.
