CBS is developing a single-camera comedy created, written by and starring David Hornsby, creator and star of CBS’ How to Be a Gentleman, and Blake Anderson, co-creator and star of Comedy Central’s Workaholics.  

In the untitled project from CBS TV Studios, a high-strung father (Hornsby) must deal with a new family dynamic when his ex-wife marries a younger, free-spirited dude (Anderson) who becomes the stepdad to his children.

In addition to writing and starring, Hornsby and Anderson executive produce.

Actor Hornsby got his start as a show creator on CBS with How to Be a Gentleman. He next will be seen in a recurring role on the new NBC drama series Good Girls and is writing the feature Blind Date for New Line with Charlie Day. Hornsby, who also was an executive producer and recurring actor on FX’s hit comedy It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, is repped by Rise Management and WME.

Anderson was co-creator, writer, producer and star of the Comedy Central series Workaholics, which ran for seven seasons. He is at work on the upcoming Netflix action-comedy feature Game Over, Man, which he is starring in and executive producing alongside his Workaholics cohorts Adam Devine and Anders Holm. He also is co-producing the upcoming Netflix comedy Eggplant Emoji alongside Devine and Holm. Anderson is repped by Avalon, WME and Morris Yorn Barnes.
