CBS And Melissa McCarthy To Produce New Comedy Series


Television network CBS and Melissa McCarthy will team up once again to produce a new half-hour comedy show, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

The as-yet untitled script focuses on the character of David Gell, who is quick to learn that there’s no place like home… unless you’re 37 and home for you is your parents’ house.

McCarthy’s “Bridesmaids” co-star Ben Falcone and Larry Dorf (MadTV) co-wrote the spec script and will have supervising producer and co-writer credits, with McCarthy having a non-writing co-executive producer credit.

Four months ago Emmy winter McCarthy and Falcone sold another comedy to CBS about a woman in her mid-40’s having a mid-life crisis, with the two on board to co-write and produce.
