CBS has ordered a comedy pilot from Warner Bros. Television that counts “Mike & Molly” star Melissa McCarthy as one of its executive producers.

Ben Falcone, husband of the Oscar-nominated actress (“Bridesmaids”), is attached to star in the untitled half-hour as a 37-year-old man who loses everything he has in the real-estate collapse and finds himself back home in the house he grew up in with his parents. Falcone is also attached as an executive producer along with Larry Dorf (“Mad TV”).

Pilot was based on a spec script. McCarthy and Falcone have a second pilot in consideration at the Eye as well.
