'Bridesmaids' duo lands CBS comedy pilot
CBS has ordered a comedy pilot from the married Bridesmaids duo Ben Falcone and Melissa McCarthy.
Falcone played Air Marshall Jon in the hit comedy, which of course co-starred his real-life spouse McCarthy.
The untitled CBS project has Falcone starring and co-writing the project, with McCarthy (who also stars on CBS’ Mike & Molly) executive producing. The pitch: “Comedy series about a single 37-year-old man (Falcone) who loses everything he has in the real estate collapse and finds himself back home in the house he grew up in with his parents.” Larry Dorf (Mad TV) is also a co-writer on the project.
