Ben Affleck and Matt Damon are teaming up yet again — this time for the small screen.

Affleck and Damon are executive producing the comedy “More Time With Family,” which has been ordered with a put-pilot agreement from CBS.

The project would star comedian Tom Papa, and is based on both Papa’s stand-up routine and Affleck’s experiences. Papa would star as a guy who changes his career and gives up life on the road to be with his family — only to find that no one asked him to do so.

The multi-camera, half-hour comedy will be written by Papa, along with Josh Goldsmith and Cathy Yuspa (“The King of Queens”).
