Erik Sommers has sold comedy projects to ABC and CBS that will be produced by Sony Pictures TV.

“Roommates” has landed at the Eye as a script sale plus penalty. Laffer centers on a successful, suave ladies man whose life is turned upside down when a guy saves his life and asks for a place to stay. Sommers and David Caspe serve as scribes and exec producers on “Roommates,” with Jamie Tarses also exec producing.

Sommers’ untitled emergency room pilot has been sold to ABC, with Will Gluck and Richie Schwartz exec producing alongside Sommers. Project follows a young doctor who begins working at an inner city ER, only to realize that the only people weirder than the patients are those who treat them.

Sommers’ recent TV credits include co-exec producing “Happy Endings” and “American Dad.” Currently, he co-exec produces “Community.”

He is repped by UTA.
