CBS greenlights four pilots, including two from Greg Garcia

Eye orders Will Gluck's 'The McCarthys,' drama 'Ordained'

CBS has added three comedy pilots and a drama to its development roster, including two laffers from Greg Garcia.

Garcia, creator of “Raising Hope” and “My Name Is Earl,” who inked a hefty development pact with CBS TV Studios last year, is fielding a single-camera and a multicam project for the Eye.

The single-cam “Super Clyde” revolves around a meek fast-food worker who decides to become a superhero. Multicam “Unauthorized Greg Garcia Project” follows a recently divorced man whose parents decide to move in with him.

Another comedy hotshot, Will Gluck, is steering “The McCarthys,” about a loud sports-crazed Boston clan. Gluck is exec producing the single-camera project for Sony Pictures TV. Brian Gallivan wrote the script and is co-exec producer.

On the drama side, CBS TV Studios’ “The Ordained” centers on a son from a Kennedy-esque political dynasty who leaves the priesthood to become a lawyer to prevent his sister from being assassinated. Lisa Takeuchi Cullen wrote the script and is co-exec producer. Frank Marshall, whose Kennedy Marshall banner inked a TV development pact with CBS last year, Larry Shuman and A.B. Fischer are exec producers.
