CBS has given a script commitment to an untitled comedy co-created by and featuring "Reaper" star Bret Harrison.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the project comes from Universal Media Studios and Scott Stuber's Stuber Productions and will be written by "George Lopez" co-creator Robert Borden from a story he co-wrote with Harrison.

The multi-camera comedy focuses on a pair of district attorneys -- one, a twentysomething, played by Harrison, and the other in his 40s -- who find themselves fighting over the same woman. Hilarity ensues.

Harrison spent the past two season as Sam Oliver, the Devil's bounty hunter, on The CW's "Reaper," which wasn't renewed this past spring. While fans have kept alive hope of some sort of syndicated renewal for the supernatural dark comedy, Harrison's co-stars Tyler Labine (FOX's "Sons of Tucson") and Missy Peregrym (ABC's "Copper") have already secured TV regular gigs.

Earlier TV credits for Harrison include "The Loop" and "Grounded for Life."
