CBS has picked up an additional comedy for the 2005-06 season, the Warner Bros. Television sitcom “Old Christine” starring former ‘Seinfeld’ regular Julia Louis-Dreyfus.

“Old Christine,” which got a 12-episode pickup and is expected to premiere midseason, stars Ms. Louis-Dreyfus as Christine, a divorced woman who deals with her son and her ex-husband’s seemingly perfect girlfriend, who is also named Christine.

“Christine” brings the number of new Warner Bros. shows picked up for the 2005-06 broadcast network season to 15, the highest of any studio.

CBS announced during its upfront presentation in New York in May that it had picked up the Warner Bros. legal drama “Close to Home” from producer Jerry Bruckheimer.
