Chris “Comedian CP” Powell is set as a series regular opposite Brett Dier and Amit Shah in CBS’ multi-camera/hybrid comedy pilot History of Them, from One Day at a Time co-creator/executive producer Gloria Calderon-Kellett, Sony Pictures TV and CBS TV Studios.
Written by Kellett and to be directed by Pam Fryman, the semi-autobiographical History of Them is a multi-cultural (Latinx & white) ensemble that revolves around two friends, Luna (Villafañe) and Adam (Dier), and how they fell in love, using the couple’s social media (Instagram/Twitter/FB) as a guide.
Powell will play Isaac, a smart, funny, former athlete and millionaire with a sweet apartment in downtown Portland where he lives with his two best friends, Adam (Dier) and Vikram (Shah).
Powell recently co-created with Chip Hall and starred in Ole Bud’s ANU Football Weekly for Adult Swim and recurred as Ned on Detroiters on Comedy Central. He’s repped by CAA, Principato-Young Entertainment and Morris Yorn Barnes.
