Colin Cowherd's CBS sitcom going to pilot
ESPN talk show host Colin Cowherd has inspired a comedyproject at CBS!
The network has ordered a pilot that focuses his life and work as an obnoxious sports talk show host.
The project’s from Bill Martin and Mike Schiff (Grounded for Life), as well as the non-writing producing team of Eric and Kim Tannenbaum. Cowherd will also produce.
Given the success of its current lineup of comedies, CBS won’t have much need for more laughers come fall 2011. But it has ordered a few other comedy pilots, including one about a man who opts to take a more candid approach to life following a life-changing experience, and a workplace ensemble centered around the young people who work at a high-powered venture capital firm.
