Writing partners Joe Port and Joe Wiseman have a new two-year deal with CBS Television Studios, with the pair moving from their longtime perch at 20th Century Fox Television, The Hollywood Reporter’s Live Feed reports.
The pair, who worked on CBS’s comedy “The Crazy Ones,” will develop and supervise new projects at the studio. Their credits also include “New Girl” on Fox and serving as consulting producers on NBC’s “The Office.”
The story notes: “Last pilot season, the duo had semi-autobiographical comedy ‘Joe & Joe & Jane’ starring Dave Annable and Sally Pressman set up at NBC, but it failed to move forward. Most recently, Port and Wiseman had a teen prodigy cooking comedy set up at NBC with Mike White that did not move beyond the development stage.”
