CBS has ordered its second comedy pilot for the 2015-16 season, “Life in Pieces,” from exec producers Justin Adler (“Samantha Who?,” “Less Than Perfect”) and Aaron Kaplan (“Chasing Life,” “Mysteries of Laura”).
The single-cam comedy from Kapital Entertainment, in association with 20th Century Fox TV, tells the story of one family through the perspectives of its different family members. Adler will pen the pilot.
The pickup marks the second pilot order for Kaplan. ABC Family previously greenlit “Kevin From Work,” a half-hour single-cam workplace comedy. Kaplan is also exec producing “Divorce,” in which Sarah Jessica Parker is likely to star, although HBO has not ordered the series yet.
CBS announced its first comedy order Wednesday, the “Untitled Tommy Johnagin Project” from “Cougar Town” creator Bill Lawrence.
Separately, CBS has recruited John Leguizamo to star in comedy pilot “Taxi-22,” a redo of a French-Canadian series about a cab driver, according to Deadline. James Gandolfini had steered the project as a producer prior to his death in 2013.
