Ben Affleck, Matt Damon bring comedy pilot to CBS
CBS has snagged a high profile comedy pilot from executive producers Ben Affleck and Matt Damon, with Tom Papa attached to star.
According to Deadline.com, the project is based on Papa's standup and will be titled "More Time with Family." It focuses on a guy who changes jobs to spend, as the title suggests, more time with his family and realizes nobody there wants him.
Damon and Papa came up with the idea while working together on "The Informant" and "Behind the Candelabra." Cathy Yuspa and Josh Goldsmith will write the 20th Century Fox TV production.
This is the second pilot this fall with Affleck attached in some capacity. He's also going to direct FOX's "The Middle Man."
