A new comedy project in the works at CBS will have “Fargo” alum Colin Hanks as one of the co-leads. The Hollywood Reporter’s Live Feed blog reports that Hanks is on board to co-star in the pilot “Life in Pieces.”
The project “centers on one family told through separate stories of its different family members,” the story reports. “Hanks will play Greg Short, the coddled youngest of three siblings who finds himself overwhelmed and unprepared for the birth of his first child.”
The project comes from Justin Adler (“Better Off Ted”), who will write the script and executive produce along with Aaron Kaplan of Kapital Entertainment. The show is a single-camera comedy from 20th Century Fox Television.
