Oliver Hudson (Splitting Up Together) and Malin Akerman (Billions) are set to star in CBS comedy pilot, The Three of Us, from writer Frank Pines, Fulwell 73 and CBS TV Studios.

Written by Pines, The Three of Us follows adult siblings — two of them played by Hudson and Akerman — who are children of divorce and must circle the wagons when their sister’s husband unexpectedly announces he wants to call it quits on their marriage.

Hudson will play Will, the worrier in the family, He always has been protective of his little brother (TBD) and sister, Ally (Akerman). Clever and perceptive, Will has a problematic need to help “father” everyone around him, so when his sister’s husband dumps her, his instincts kick in and he moves her into his house.

Akerman’s Ally is the smart and resilient middle sibling to two brothers. She is thought of as the most “normal” and sensible one in the family but also is plagued with the worst luck. Her latest catastrophe is her husband leaving her, and she finds herself dealing with being a single mom to an 8-year-old son and having to move in with her big brother and his wife.
