‘Two and a Half-Men’ creator Chuck Lorre’s single mom comedy gets pilot order from CBS

By Daniel S Levine,

Chuck Lorre signed a four-year deal with Warner Bros. TV three months ago and the prolific sitcom creator already has his first pilot commitment from CBS under the agreement. The single mom sitcom was developed with two Two and a Half Men veterans.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the series, simply titled Mom for now, was written with Two and a Half Men executive producer Eddie Gorodetsky and story editor Gemma Baker. The single mother at the center of the show is recently sober and is trying to get her life straightened out in Napa Valley.

Gorodetsky has worked with Lorre since Dharma & Greg and has been an EP on his three current CBS shows, which also includes Mike & Molly and The Big Bang Theory.

Deadline notes that this is Lorre’s first project with a female lead since the early 1990s shows Grace Under Fire and Cybill.

The project comes after Lorre signed a four-year deal with WBTV in September. It also includes feature film projects with Warner Bros. Pictures and cables series. Lorre could also develop drama projects under the deal.
