More ‘Mad Love’ for CBS

Network gives 13-episode order

CBS has given a 13-episode order to midseason sitcom “Mad Love.”

Eye is now waiting for Sony Pictures TV, which produces the show with CBS TV Studios, to accept the order. Deal is expected to be finalized shortly.

Net, Sony and CBS TV Studios are still making final cast tweaks on the show, as “Party Down” star Lizzy Caplan, who appeared in the pilot, is no longer on the show. (Judy Greer is said to be the frontrunner to replace her).

Multi-cam laffer 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 TNT buddy lawyer dramedy “Franklin and Bash.”

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

Eye has already ordered its “Criminal Minds” spinoff for midseason. Network is also in discussions to order the 20th Century Fox TV drama “Chaos” for midseason.
