‘Brothers’ a go on CBS

Show originally developed for Alphabet web

CBS has greenlit production on “The DeMarco Brothers,” a Touchstone Television comedy pilot targeted for fall 2000.

The laffer, from scribe John Levenstein (“The John Larroquette Show”) and former “Golden Girls” producer Nina Wass, is an adult family comedy that revolves around a trio of single, twentysomething brothers who spent part of their youth as members of a failed pop band. Their relationships with one another as adults, as well as their interaction with their parents, will form the basis of the half-hour skein.

The pilot is Touchstone’s first at CBS this season. Disney-owned studio has already sold projects to ABC, NBC and Fox.

Levenstein wrote the pilot script and, with Wass, will serve as exec producer of the series. Show was originally developed as a midseason contender for ABC, but Touchstone quickly found a buyer in the Eye after the Alphabet decided it didn’t need any additional midseason product.

Wass recently inked an overall development deal with Touchstone Television. She joined the studio after spending 12 years at Witt-Thomas-Harris Prods., most recently serving as president of the production company.

While at W-T-H, she served as a producer on a slew of the company’s skeins, including “The Golden Girls,” “Empty Nest,” “Larroquette” and “The Secret Lives of Men.”

In addition to “Larroquette,” Levenstein’s credits as a writer and producer include “The Secret Lives of Men” and “Hiller & Diller.” His feature writing credits include the upcoming Fox pic “Against the Glass.”
