WB Nabs ‘Cedric,’ ‘Fiona’

In an effort to further beef up its comedy bench, the WB Network has given midseason orders to two more series: “Cedric the Coach” and “The (Mis)Adventures of Fiona Plum.”

The WB has ordered seven episodes of Artists Television Group’s “Cedric,” which stars comedian Cedric the Entertainer as a divorced father who coaches the worst team in the NBA.

Studios USA’s “Fiona Plum” has received a nine-episode order. The series stars newcomer Kelly Brook as a pampered young British witch who is sent to the United States to be a nanny to a mortal family while being limited to three spells a day.
