The project, from Warner Bros. TV and Kaplan’s Kapital Entertainment, centers on two fortysomething parents who were wild and reckless teenagers now face their worst nightmare—raising three teenagers of their own. Kopelman wrote the script and is executive producing with Kaplan.
This marks the first single-camera comedy order by CBS this season — the rest have been all multi-camera or hybrid — though I hear that the O’Shannon/Butler/Hope project, originally developed as single-camera and ordered to pilot as hybrid, may revert to a single-camera format.
What Goes Around Comes Around marked the third consecutive broadcast sale for Kopelman and Kaplan who had a multi-camera comedy project at CBS last year and a half-hour spec with John Hamburg attached to direct at Fox the year before. The two also developed a project together at Nickelodeon. This is the third network pilot order for Kapital Entertainment this season, joining single-camera comedy The Second Fattest Housewife in Westport at ABC and animated presentation Botcop at Fox.
