CBS Buys Two Comedies From ‘The Millers’ Creator

Sep 17, 2014  •  Post A Comment

The creator of the CBS sitcom “The Millers” — who was also behind “My Name Is Earl,” “Raising Hope” and “Yes, Dear,” among other shows — has sold two new comedy projects to CBS.

The Hollywood Reporter’s Live Feed reports that Greg Garcia’s CBS TV Studios-based banner Amigos de Garcia’s received script commitments for two untitled multicamera projects — one workplace comedy and another comedy about a couple that tries to set up two friends.

Bobby Bowman, a frequent collaborator with Garcia, will write the script and executive produce the workplace comedy along with Garcia, the report notes.

“Bowman’s credits include writing and exec producing Garcia’s ‘My Name Is Earl,’ writing and co-exec producing ‘Raising Hope,’ and penning episodes of CBS’s ‘The Millers,'” the story adds.

The other project comes from Chris Harris (“How I Met Your Mother,” “Late Show With David Letterman”), who will write the script and executive produce along with Garcia.
