CBS has ordered a comedy pilot that will star Jim Gaffigan as married pop in New York.

The laugher from Peter Tolan (Rescue Me) and Gaffigan would feature the comedian as a happily hitched father of five, “just as he is in real life,” CBS says. It will be a single-camera comedy.

Sony is the studio on the project. Other executive producers are Michael Wimer and Alex Murray.

Gaffigan’s most recent comedy album,“Mr. Universe,” has been nominated for a Grammy Award. His new book “Dad is Fat” comes out in May.
