CBS goes to head of ‘Class’

CBS has given a 13-episode order to “Class,” the half-hour comedy created by David Crane (“Friends”) and Jeffrey Klarik (“Half and Half”). The network secured the project after a fierce bidding war, in which several networks — including NBC and Fox — made strong plays for the show. “Class” revolves around a core group of eight twentysomethings who were all in the same third-grade class 20 years ago. Most of the group doesn’t keep in touch or even remember one another. They’re brought together again by happenstance when one of them throws a surprise anniversary party for his girlfriend — whom he met in the third grade. “They have separate lives and there are few connections that exist beforehand,” Klarik said. “But through the course of the series, connections are made between the characters. It’s about following their individual lives — there’s no one living room where they gather.”
