In a very competitive situation with several networks bidding, CBS has landed Me, Myself and I, a single-camera comedy from writer Dan Kopelman and Aaron Kaplan’s Kapital Entertainment. The comedy, whose storyline spans five decades, has received a pilot production commitment. Warner Bros. TV, where Kopelman is under an overall deal, is the studio.
Written by Kopelman, Me, Myself & I examines one man’s life over a 50-year span, somewhat in the vein of Boyhood. The show will focus on three distinct periods in his life – as a 14-year-old in 1991, a 39-year-old in present day, and a 64-year-old in 2041. Kopelman executive produces with Kaplan and Dana Honor.
This is the fourth consecutive broadcast sale for Kopelman and Kaplan and the third in a row at CBS. Last year, the single-camera comedy What Goes Around Comes Around, also from WBTV, went to pilot at the eye network.
This is Kapital Entertainment’s third comedy sale so far this season at CBS where the company has returning single-camera comedy series Life In Pieces. Me, Myself & I joins a multi-camera project from Dana Klein and Mark Feuerstein and another multi-camera comedy from Corinne Kingsbury.
