CBS Orders Project From Co-Creator of 'Rescue Me' Deadline

CBS has given a put pilot commitment to Jim Gaffigan and Peter Tolan for a single-camera comedy loosely based on Gaffigan's life, reports Deadline.com.

Tolan is the co-creator of "Rescue Me." The pair will co-write the story, although Tolan will write the script, which is about a man who lives with his wife and five children in a two-bedroom apartment in New York City.

Gaffigan's first starring role was on CBS's "Welcome to New York." He has appeared on "The Ellen Show" and TBS's "My Boys."
