TBS herding Cattle laffer

Cabler buys up McCormack's 'Union'

Eric McCormack’s Big Cattle Prods. has sold the cast-contingent series pilot “Imperfect Union” to TBS as a potential workplace comedy.

Tom Maxwell and Don Woodard, who executive produced several seasons of NBC’s “Just Shoot Me,” will write the pilot and serve as showrunners-exec producers.

McCormack and Michael Forman, head of production and development for Big Cattle, also will executive produce.

“Imperfect Union” revolves around a young woman, stepping in for her retiring father as shop steward in a switch plant, who butts heads with the young man taking over the factory from his retiring father.

Project is being developed as a primetime series for TBS, which launches its first scripted comedy, “My Boys,” in primetime on Nov. 28. Cabler also is mining skeins in a variety of genres for latenight and recently slated semi-scripted laffer “10 Items or Less” for Mondays at 11 p.m. beginning Nov. 27 (Daily Variety, Sept. 29).

Big Cattle produces the latenight improv laffer “Lovespring International” for Lifetime. No word on whether the half-hour has been renewed for a second season.

Maxwell and Woodard’s writing credits include the TV series “Family Guy,” “My Big Fat Greek Life” and “Oh Baby.” Woodard also co-exec produced ABC’s “Rodney.”
