Greg Garcia, the creator of Fox’s quirky sitcom Raising Hope, has a good chance of getting a new show on CBS during the 2013-2014 TV season. The Emmy-winner had two scripts picked up for pilot orders by CBS on Friday. The network also put in two other pilot orders.
Garcia’s first project is Super Clyde, a single-camera sitcom about a fast food worker who decides he needs a new job. So, he becomes a superhero. TVLine notes that his second project is currently untitled and centers on a divorced man who has to live with his parents.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Garcia secured an overall deal with the network in May. His previous credits include NBC’s My Name is Earl and CBS’ Yes Dear.
Easy A director Will Gluck, who is also working on NBC’s Michael J. Fox series, also signed on to executive produce The McCarthys for CBS. The project comes from writer Brian Gallivan and is about a sports-crazy Boston family. It’s going to be produced by Sony Pictures Television and Gluck's Olive Bridge.
Finally, CBS also put in a pilot order for journalist Lisa Takeuchi Cullen’s The Ordained, a drama about a Kennedy-esque family with a son who leaves the priesthood to go into law. Executive producers include frequent Steven Spielberg collaborator Frank Marshall and Devious Maids’ Larry Shuman.
CBS’ other pilot orders include Mom and Ex-Men.
