EXCLUSIVE: After yet another bidding war over a comedy project this season, CBS has landed a multi-camera comedy from Mr. Sunshine co-creators/executive producers Alex Barnow and Marc Firek with a put pilot commitment. The project, about newlyweds, hails from Sony Pictures TV, where UTA-repped Barnow and Firek are under their third consecutive overall deal. They will write and executive produce. This is the duo’s second sale this season; they also have a script about adult siblings set up at NBC. I hear the two projects are in shared first position.
