Tarses family to develop family sitcom

NBC comedy partners father and son

The Tarses clan has come together to develop — what else? — a family comedy for NBC.

Sitcom vet Jay Tarses and his son, comedy writer Matt Tarses, are onboard to write “Assisted Loving” — which they’ll exec produce with Matt’s sister, Jamie Tarses.

Sony Pictures TV, where both Matt and Jamie Tarses are based, is onboard as the studio.

Project centers on a gay man who helps his father find love after the family matriarch dies.

Jay Tarses is no stranger to working with his children: He appears on “My Boys,” which Jamie Tarses exec produces, in a recurring role as Jack Brisco.

And Matt Tarses was a writer on “Public Morals,” the short-lived 1996 comedy that his father created for CBS.

Jay Tarses’ TV credits include “The Days and Nights of Molly Dodd,” “Buffalo Bill,” and “The Bob Newhart Show.”

Matt Tarses, meanwhile, is currently developing the project “True Love” for CBS. Jamie Tarses is exec producing “True Love” with brother Matt, and she’s also behind ABC’s potential rework of “St. Elmo’s Fire” and the Alphabet’s Matthew Perry comedy project.
