CBS just ordered four pilots, including two comedies from Raising Hope and My Name Is Earl creator Greg Garcia.
First up is Garcia’s Super Clyde, a single-camera comedy about a meek, unassuming fast food worker decides to become a super hero. Garcia also sold CBS an untitled multi-cam project about a recently divorced man whose life is complicated when his parents decide to move in with him. Both are from CBS TV Studios with Garcia as writer and executive producer.
In addition, CBS picked up The McCarthys (Sony), a single-camera family comedy about a loud, sports-crazed Boston clan, from writer and co-executive producer Brian Gallivan and executive producer Will Gluck.
Also, CBS ordered a drama pilot called The Ordained (CBS TV Studios) from former Time writer Lisa Takeuchi Cullen. The drama follows the son of a Kennedy-esque family who leaves the priesthood and becomes a lawyer to get closer to his family’s enemies and prevent his politician sister from being assassinated. Executive producers include Frank Marshall, Larry Shuman and A.B. Fischer, with Cullen and Robert Zotnowski co-executive producing.
