NBC is finalizing deals for a pilot order to an untitled multi-camera comedy (fka We Thought We Were Done), from creator Mike O’Malley and Lionsgate Television, for which Jon Cryer is in talks to star.
Written by Survivor’s Remorse creator O’Malley, the comedy centers on Jim and Julia who, after an amicable divorce, decide to continue to raise their kids at the family home while taking turns on who gets to stay with them. Navigating the waters of divorce and child-sharing gets hilariously more complicated for Jim when the owner of his favorite sports team enters the picture and wins Julia’s heart.
O’Malley executive produces with The Conners EP Tom Werner, who also owns the Boston Red Sox, as well as Boston Celtics majority owner Wyc Grousbeck, his wife, Emilia Fazzalari, and George Geyer.
The off-cycle pilot pickup comes on the heels of NBC making decisions on its two existing comedy pilots, Lopez vs. Lopez, which went to series, and the off-cycle Hungry, which did not.
