The announcement is set to be made today at CW's portion of the Television Critics Assn. winter press tour in Pasadena.
"Under the creative guidance of Chris Rock and Ali LeRoi and performances from an incredibly talented cast, 'Everybody Hates Chris' has consistently proven itself to be one of the best comedies on television," CW entertainment president Dawn Ostroff said. "Producing one great episode after another, this is a show that we want viewers to associate with the CW."
Created by Rock and LeRoi and narrated by Rock, Chris is inspired by the comedian's childhood experiences growing up in Brooklyn, N.Y., during the early 1980s. Tyler James Williams stars as Rock.
Chris launched on UPN as one of the most buzzworthy new series of the 2005-06 season.
