CBS Developing Comedy Based on Weitz Brothers’ Pic ‘In Good Company’

CBS is developing a comedy based on the 2004 Weitz brothers’ feature “In Good Company,” which starred Dennis Quaid and Topher Grace.

The Universal TV project is the latest in a slew of movie-to-TV adaptations floating around this development cycle. It’s a symptom of how few experienced writers and showrunners are available to develop original ideas.

Sitcom vets Josh Bycel and Jon Fenner (“Happy Endings”) are writing the script with Paul Weitz, who wrote and directed the film. “Company” revolves around a middle-aged exec who has to contend with a new boss who is half his age and is also dating his daughter. If it goes to pilot, the plan is to produce it as a hybrid multi- and single-camera show.

Bycel, Fenner and Paul Weitz exec produce along with Andrew Miano and Chris Weitz of the brothers’ Depth of Field banner. Kerry Kohansky is also an EP.
