Greg Garcia has partnered with two writers who worked on his most recent series, CBS’ The Millers — Stephnie Weir and Bobby Bowman — for two new comedy projects at the eye network through CBS TV Studios, where Garcia’s company Amigos de Garcia Productions is based.
The untitled Stephnie Weir multi-camera comedy, also known as Y’all in the Family, is set in Texas and centers on a conservative, small town family who is forced to reconcile their family values when they discover their children’s lives are less than perfect. Texas-born and raised Weir will write the script and will executive produce with Garcia. Weir served as a consulting producer on The Millers. In front of the camera, the Mad TV alumna co-starred on FX’s The Comedians and is recurring on two freshman comedies, the CW/CBS Studios’ Crazy Ex-Girlfriend and CBS/20th TV’s Life In Pieces. She is repped by Meghan Schumacher Management and UTA.
How To Speak American, written by Bowman, is a hybrid comedy about a coddled millennial who teaches ESL to a variety of immigrants, who in turn, teach him about grit, courage and hustle. Bowman and Garcia executive produce. Family Tools creator Bowman has a long history with Garcia and has worked as co-executive producer/executive producer on all of Garcia’s series, Yes, Dear and The Millers on CBS, My Name Is Earl on NBC and Raising Hope on Fox. He is repped by ICM Partners.
