Written by Austen Earl, 99 Problems revolves around three very different couples from different backgrounds who all have a child in the same first-grade class and are exposed to the same inciting problem each week — which affects them in different ways. Earl executive produces with Amigos de Garcia’s Garcia and Alix Jaffe. CBS TV Studios is the studio.
99 Problems reunites the team behind Sebastian. That multi-camera project, also written/executive produced by Earl and executive produced by Garcia and Jaffe for CBS TV Studios, was inspired by the life of comedian Sebastian Maniscalco. The project landed at NBC, where it went to pilot last season starring Maniscalco and Tony Danza.
Earl, previously a writer-producer on Garcia’s CBS series The Millers, is repped at UTA. Garcia is repped by CAA.
