Jon Dore has landed the lead in The Half Of It, CBS’ multi-camera comedy pilot written/executive produced by Mike Gibbons and directed by James Burrows. The project, from CBS TV Studios, centers on Mike (Dore), a newly divorced dad who revels in the fact that he now gets to keep half his stuff, which is more than he ever had when he was married. Mike is dealing with mixed feelings: half of him is the excited, upbeat single guy and the other half is the single dad who is in over his head with single parenting.

Canadian-born actor-comedian Dore, repped by Gersh and Principato-Young Entertainment, previously co-starred on ABC’s How To Live With Your Parents.
