Project revolves around an average-joe firefighter who winds up getting elected as mayor of his town when a video of him saving two kids from a burning building goes viral.
Stults and Whatley will exec produce with sitcom vets Will Gluck and Richie Schwartz and Joe Port and Joe Wiseman.
The untitled half-hour has a script commitment from CBS.
Stults was most recently a series regular on the Fox comedy “Enlisted” and had a recurring guest shot on Fox’s “Ben and Kate.”
The principals are all repped by UTA.
