Jim Gaffigan may soon be returning to TV.

CBS has ordered a comedy pilot for an untitled project from the My Boys alum, TVGuide.com has learned. The single-camera comedy would star Gaffigan as a happily married and harried NYC father of five, as he is in real life.

Gaffigan and Rescue Me co-creator Peter Tolan will pen the pilot and executive-produce alongside Michael Wimer and Alex Murray.

It's not the only family-centric project for Gaffigan, who announced in fall that he's writing a family book scheduled to be released in the summer.
