Channing Tatum, Nick Zano Team for CBS Comedy

WBTV project to revolve around female-dominated multi-generational family in New Jersey

Channing Tatum is diving into TV production, partnering with thesp Nick Zano and comedy vets Andrew Reich and Ted Cohen on a multicamera laffer for CBS and Warner Bros. TV.

Zano (“Happy Endings,” “2 Broke Girls”) will topline, co-write and exec produce “Nicky” with Reich and Cohen. Tatum (pictured right with Zano) also exec produces with his producing partner, Reid Carolin.

Tatum, a rising leading-man star in the feature world, and Carolin are at work as producers on a number of feature projects including “22 Jump Street,” a sequel to “Magic Mike” and the Evel Knievel biopic set up at Sony Pictures.

Project revolves around Zano’s real-life experience of growing up in a multi-generational house dominated by women in New Jersey. Just as he’s ready to move out at the age of 30, he realizes he needs to stay home and help raise his younger sister.

Reich and Cohen are sitcom vets with resumes that include a long stint on NBC’s “Friends” and more recently, CBS’ “Rules of Engagement.”

Zano, Tatum and Carolin are repped by UTA. Reich and Cohen are with WME.
