CBS orders pilot from Ben Affleck and Matt Damon

"A comedy produced by Ben Affleck and Matt Damon has found a home at CBS, EW confirms.

Titled More Time With Family, CBS has ordered it for put pilot commitment. Comedian Tom Papa is set to star in the multi-camera comedy, as well as co-write with Cathy Yuspa and Josh Goldsmith. Affleck and Damon will executive produce through their company Pearl Street Films, along with Dave Becky and Josh Lieberman of 3 ARTS. Deadline first reported the news.

Tom Papa (The Colin Quinn Show, Inside Amy Schumer) will star in the half-hour comedy, as a man who undergoes a career change and leaves his life on the road to spend more time at home with his family. It is based on Papa’s stand-up and Matt Damon’s experiences. 20th Century Fox TV will produce.

It’s hardly Damon and Affleck’s first foray into TV — the pair brought Project Greenlight to HBO in the early 2000s and also partnered on Push, Nevada for ABC."

How do you like them apples?

Will they be in it? That I'd watch.

Papa has a perennial shit-eating grin. He was on that awful "Marriage Ref" Seinfeld jerk-off show.

Will they do occasional stunt-casting cameos to goose the ratings?

Sounds exciting... not.

Greedy bitches, both of them.

It sounds like the plot of six (at least) existing shows.

Great! a show that is going to have a bunch of hipsters and herbal teas with their thick black glasses, messy uncombed dirty hair,and IKEA, minimalist and mid century interiors and furnishings.
