CBS orders comedy pilot starring Patrick Warburton

Posted on

In case Rules of Engagement doesn’t go the distance, star Patrick Warburton already has a potential job lined up.

CBS has ordered a comedy pilot that will star Warburton as a beloved, recently retired baseball player who finds that adjusting to retirement isn’t as easy as he thought it’d be. It’s a multi-camera from Greg Malins and Doug Robinson.

CBS also ordered two other comedy pilots today. One is from writers Julie Rottenberg and Elisa Zuritsky and is based on an Israeli format about a married mom who struggles to balance family, life, and work. It’ll be a single-camera pilot.

The other is from Tad Quill and is a multi-camera comedy about a recently widowed father raises his 12-year old son while jumping back into the dating pool.
