CBS has given a 13-episode order to midseason sitcom “Mad Love.” Pickup is expected to be finalized shortly.

Multi-cam laffer, from Sony Pictures TV and CBS TV Studios, revolves around four twentysomethings searching for love in New York City.

Show continues the streak of success for exec producer Jamie Tarses, who has had a banner pilot season — landing two comedies on ABC — Matthew Perry starrer "Mr. Sunshine" and couples ensemble "Happy Endings" — as well as the buddy lawyer dramedy on TNT, "Franklin and Bash."

"Mad Love" comes from Tarses' brother, scribe/exec producer Matt Tarses, and stars Minka Kelly (above),
Ashley Austin Morris, Hal Williams, Jason Biggs, Tyler Labine and Sarah Wright. Pamela Fryman directed the pilot.
