CBS Picks Up Pilot From Hilary Winston, Carter Bays & Craig Thomas As Hybrid Comedies Rule Early Orders

CBS has given a pilot order to My Time/Your Time, a half-hour comedy from the creators of two previous CBS series: Bad Teacher‘s Hilary Winston and How I Met Your Mother’s Carter Bays and Craig Thomas.

This is CBS’ second comedy pilot order this season, joining the untitled Dan O’Shannon/Robyn Butler/Wayne Hope project, which was ordered earlier today. Both were sold and originally written as single-camera and later converted to a hybrid format, part of CBS’ move this year to turn several single-camera scripts into multi-camera or hybrid. (CBS also has the straight-to-series Kevin James multi-camera comedy.)

Craig and CarterThe hybrid format is familiar territory for Bays and Thomas as it was introduced by their long-running CBS sitcom HIMYM.

Winston wrote My Time/Your Time, based on the web series 7P/10E. It chronicles the relationship of a young couple as they begin dating long distance.

She executive produces through her overall deal at Sony Pictures TV, where she and her company Gifted and Talented Camp have been based for the past eight years. Bays and Thomas also executive produce through their Sony TV overall deal, which the duo signed this past summer for their banner, Bays Thomas Prods. Sony TV is co-producing with CBS TV Studios.

The five-part web series 7P/10E, released in 2014, starred Chris Alvarado and creator/EP Avital Ash as a couple embarking on a bicoastal romantic relationship via Skype. Here is the first episode:
