CBS is moving forward with a comedy project from two producers who have been busy with the hit show “Modern Family” over at ABC. Nellie Andreeva reports on Deadline.com that the network gave a put pilot commitment to “Workplace,” from Paul Corrigan and Brad Walsh.
“As the title suggests, the project is a workplace comedy,” Andreeva writes. “It is set in a three-story building with three seemingly separate businesses: a one-hit-wonder app developer, a real estate company grudgingly shared by a divorced couple, and a cafe run by two sisters, one of whom hasn’t worked a day in her life.”
The single-camera project is being produced by 20th Century Fox TV, with Corrigan and Walsh executive producing. The pair were at CBS before going to “Modern Family” six years ago, working on the family comedy “1321 Clover,” which received a pilot order from CBS in 2007.
“Modern Family” has been an Emmy favorite, including winning Outstanding Comedy Series five years in a row, from 2010-2014.
