CBS Orders a New Chuck Lorre Project Deadline

A comedy project from Chuck Lorre, the man behind "The Big Bang Theory" and “Two and a Half Men,” has received a pilot production order from CBS, reports Deadline.com.

The project, called "Mom," is about a newly sober single mother who is getting her life back together while living in California’s Napa Valley, the story says.

The project is Lorre's first under a new four-year deal he signed with Warner Bros. TV in September. It also marks a return to female-centered comedies for Lorre, who in the 1990s created "Grace Under Fire" and "Cybill."

Lorre co-wrote "Mom" on spec with "Two and a Half Men" executive producer Eddie Gorodetsky and story editor Gemma Baker, and it's considered a top prospect for CBS's fall 2013 schedule, the story adds.
