CBS Orders Multi-Cam Family Comedy from Greg Garcia and ‘Crazy Ex-Girlfriend’ Actress

CBS has ordered an untitled comedy pilot written by Stephnie Weir and executive produced by Greg Garcia, Variety has learned.

The multi-cam comedy centers around a conservative, small town family who are forced to reconcile their values when they discover their children’s lives are less than perfect.

Weir serves as writer and exec producer on the project, with Alix Jaffe on board as co-exec producer. The project hails from CBS Television Studios and Garcia’s Amigos de Garcia Productions shingle. Weir has previously worked with Garcia as a writer and consulting producer on his two most recent comedies, “The Millers” and “Raising Hope.”

An actress and writer, Weir currently appears on The CW’s Golden Globe-winning comedy “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend,” with previous roles on CBS’ “Life in Pieces” and FX’s “The Comedians.” She is perhaps best known for her stint as a cast member on “MADtv” from 2000-06.

This marks the season’s second pilot pickup for Garcia, who is also executive producing NBC’s “Sebastian,” produced by Amigos de Garcia and CBS Television Studios for the Peacock.

Other sitcoms in contention at CBS for the 2015-16 season include multicam comedy “The Great Indoors” from “Tosh.0” co-creator Mike Gibbons; “The Kicker,” from “30 Rock’s” Tina Fey and Robert Carlock; “My Time/Your Time” from “How I Met Your Mother” creators Carter Bays and Craig Thomas; “Superior Donuts” from “Odd Couple” exec producer Bob Daily; and an untitled comedy based on an Australian series. CBS previously gave a 13-episode series order to an untitled Kevin James comedy.
