By Nellie Andreeva, Denise Petski


CBS has given a pilot green light to The Story of Us, a hybrid comedy from Mike Royce (One Day At A Time), Nick Stoller (Neighbors), Sony Pictures TV and CBS TV Studios.

Written and executive produced by comedy veteran Royce, The Story of Us is a story told through interviews and vignettes spanning 10 years, about how an unlikely couple becomes an unlikely family.

Stoller executive produces via his Stoller Global Solutions banner alongside producing partner/TV executive Conor Welch. Sony Pictures TV, where Royce and Stoller are based, produces in association with CBS TV Studios.


The Story of Us is the second comedy pilot at CBS this cycle. It joins multi-cam Bob Hearts Abishola from Chuck Lorre, Eddie Gorodetsky, Al Higgins and Warner Bros. TV, which received an early order and has been fully cast.

The Story of Us also marks a return to CBS for Royce, who was an executive producer on the network’s hit family comedy Everybody Loves Raymond. He went on to co-create and executive produce Men of a Certain Age for TNT and Sony TV’s current Netflix comedy series One Day at a Time, a reimagining of the Norman Lear classic, on which he serves as co-showrunner.
