Pilot Scoop: CBS Orders Two Comedies from Greg Garcia, Kennedy-esque Drama and More
The Eye Network Friday extended pilot orders to the Raising Hope writer/EP’s Super Clyde, a single-camera sitcom about a meek fast food worker who decides to become a super hero. It also ordered his untitled multi-camera pilot about a recently divorced man living with his parents.
The go-aheads were a homecoming of a sort for Garcia; his Yes Dear ran on CBS from 2000 – 2006.
The network also moved forward with The McCarthys, a single-camera comedy about a sports-crazed Boston family written by Brian Gallivan (Are You There, Chelsea?) and executive-produced by Will Gluck (Gross Pointe, The Loop).
The Ordained, penned by author/journalist Lisa Takeuchi Cullen and exec-produced by Frank Marshall (War Horse, The Bourne Legacy) and Larry Shuman (Devious Maids), centers on the son of a Kennedy-esque family who leaves the priesthood and becomes a lawyer to prevent his politican sister from being assasinated.
