Sitcom survivors Clark, O’Malley say ‘Yes, Dear’

Thesps to star in pilot for CBS

The namesake behind this season’s first series casualty is back.

Mike O’Malley, whose self-titled “Mike O’Malley Show” quickly got the ax from NBC last fall, will co-star in the 20th Century Fox TV sitcom pilot “Yes, Dear” for CBS.

O’Malley, who caused a stir by drafting a 19-page treatise on the direction of “Mike O’Malley” before it was canceled, will appear opposite Anthony Clark, who also headlined a short-lived NBC sitcom — “Boston Common.”

Clark plays a thirtysomething man who must deal with his neurotic wife while being tempted by his irresponsible brother-in-law, played by O’Malley.

“Yes, Dear” comes from exec producers Alan Kirschenbaum (“Coach,” “Stark Raving Mad”) and Greg Garcia (“Family Guy,” “Built to Last”).

Besides “The Mike O’Malley Show,” O’Malley’s credits include the WB sitcom “Life with Roger” and providing one of the voices on the upcoming WB animated series “Baby Blues.” He has also appeared in the features “28 Days,” “Pushing Tin” and “Deep Impact.”

Clark’s credits beyond “Boston Common” include the ABC laffer “Soul Man” and a recurring role on ABC’s “Ellen.” He’ll soon be seen in the film “Killing Cinderella.”

O’Malley is repped by CAA and attorney Steve Clark. Anthony Clark is repped by ICM and attorney Steve Katz.
