CBS grabs ‘Greatness’ laffer

Eye lands ensemble comedy from scribe Tom Gormican and 20th TV

Greatness now has a home. CBS has nabbed the ensemble comedy “On the Verge of Greatness” from scribe Tom Gormican and 20th Century Fox TV and 3 Arts.

The single-camera project revolves around a group of twentysomething friends. Gormican is writing and will exec produce with Jake Kasdan, who is attached to direct should the project go to pilot. Howard Klein and Oly Obst of 3 Arts are also exec producing.

Gormican’s pitch piqued the interest of CBS, NBC and ABC. The Eye ponied up a script commitment with a penalty to seal the deal.

Gormican has come on strong in his first major stab at TV development. He’s also fielding a handful of feature scripts and is a co-producer on Relativity’s upcoming Farrelly brothers feature set to bow in April.

He’s repped by WME and 3 Arts.
