Punam Patel will be joining the cast of The Kenan Show, according to a report in Deadline. Patel previously played the role of Patti on the ABC series Kevin From Work and star opposite SNL star Kenan Thompson and Andy Garcia in the new show. In the new comedy series, Thompson plays a recently widowed dad working to raise his kids with help from his father-in-law who is also a retired police officer. Another totally chill, NBD fact about this show is that Chris Rock (yes, the Chris Rock) is directing it.
