CBS has bought a comedy project from “Sex and the City” producer Jenny Bicks, Variety has learned. “Entourage” creator Doug Ellin is attached as an exec producer.

The untitled project revolves around a successful young couple who finds themselves starting an unconventional family.

Bicks created the project, based on an idea by Ellin and writer Joey Boukadakis. She will write and exec produce the potential series by way of her Perkins Street Productions banner. Ellin will exec produce via his Halyard Park shingle, which is currently under and overall deal with CBS Television Studio, the studio behind the single camera comedy.

Teri Weinberg (“The Office,” “Ugly Betty”) will also exec produce though her production company, Yellow Brick Road. Boukadakis, who wrote Comedy Central’s animated series “Blitz,” which was based on the life of Dan Bilzerian, will serve as a co-exec producer on the pilot and series, should it be picked up.

Aside from this development project, Bicks is currently working on Whitney Cummings’ HBO comedy pilot and TV Land’s “First Wives Club.”

Bicks is repped by UTA. Ellin and Halyard Park are repped by CAA, along with Boukadakis who is also repped by Mosaic.

    Not much here but I’m intrigued… I guess? Boukadakis one of the smartest writers I’ve met with in town. Maybe this will be one CBS show that won’t be entirely terrible. But that’s probably wishful thinking.
