CBS Orders Multi-Cam Comedy Pilot from ‘Tosh.0’ Co-Creator

CBS has given a pilot order to multi-cam comedy “The Great Indoors,” from “Tosh.0” co-creator Mike Gibbons.

Gibbons will write and executive produce the project, which hails from CBS Television Studios. “The Great Indoors” centers around an adventure reporter who must adapt to the times when he becomes the boss to a group of millennials in the digital department of the magazine.

Gibbons’ previous credits include producing three iterations of “The Late Late Show,” from Craig Kilborn through James Corden, along with “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” for which he won an Emmy Award, and “Lopez Tonight.”

CBS has four other comedy pilots in contention for 2016-17 season, “The Kicker,” from “30 Rock” producers Tina Fey and Robert Carlock; “My Time/Your Time” from “How I Met Your Mother” creators Carter Bays and Craig Thomas; “Superior Donuts” from “Odd Couple” exec producer Bob Daily; and an untitled comedy based on Australian series “Upper Middle Bogan.” CBS has already given a 13-episode series production commitment to an untitled Kevin James comedy.

On the drama side, CBS is considering pilots for “Drew,” a contemporary take on Nancy Drew; legal drama “Doubt,” starring Katherine Heigl, Steven Pasquale and Laverne Cox; and “Bunker Hill,” a drama from “Parenthood” creator Jason Katims.

For detailed information on all of this year’s pilots, see Variety’s Pilot Scorecard.
