CBS Orders Single-Cam Comedy Pilot from Aaron Kaplan, Dan Kopelman

CBS has added to its pilot haul by picking up single-camera comedy “What Goes Around Comes Around,” Variety has learned.

Hailing from Warner Bros Television in association with Kapital Entertainment, the pilot centers around two 40-something parents who were wild and reckless teenagers and are now facing their worst nightmare — raising three teenagers of their own.

“Malcolm in the Middle” and “Rules of Engagement” producer Dan Kopelman penned the script and will executive produce with Kapital’s Aaron Kaplan (“Mysteries of Laura”).

Earlier Monday, CBS ordered drama pilot “Training Day,” based on the 2001 Denzel Washington-Ethan Hawke movie of the same name. “Training Day” will be directed by Antoine Fuqua, who helmed the film, and is written by Will Beall. The project is also produced by Warner Bros. TV.

Other comedy pilots in contention at CBS include multicam offering “The Great Indoors“; “The Kicker,” from “30 Rock’s” Tina Fey and Robert Carlock; “Superior Donuts” from “Odd Couple” EP Bob Daily; “My Time/Your Time” from “How I Met Your Mother” creators Carter Bays and Craig Thomas; and an untitled comedy based on Australian series “Upper Middle Bogan.” CBS has already ordered an untitled Kevin James comedy to series.
