Former “Modern Family” executive producer Bill Wrubel has sold a project to CBS, according to a report by Nellie Andreeva on Deadline.com.
The project marks his first sale since he moved to Warner Bros. TV with an overall deal. CBS has given a pilot production commitment to a comedy called “The Good Life,” which focuses on a man who thinks everyone else is achieving their dreams.
He “ultimately realizes he has everything he’s ever wanted. He does that through what I hear is a journey in the vein of ‘It’s A Wonderful Life,’” Andreeva notes.
She adds: “Wrubel spent the past five seasons on the ABC/20th TV hit ‘Modern Family,’ which he joined after the pilot as a co-executive producer. He served as an executive producer for the past three seasons and shared in all five of the series’ best comedy Emmys.”
