CBS Re-Piloting ‘The McCarthys’ As Multi-Camera Comedy

CBS has ordered a new pilot for Irish-American family comedy The McCarthys, which will be converted from a single-camera to multi-camera. Talks are underway with cast members about joining the new pilot. Produced by Sony TV and Will Gluck’s Olive Bridge Entertainment, The McCarthys revolves around a big Irish Catholic, sports-crazed Boston clan and the gay son whose greatest sin is not his sexuality but his desire to spend less time with his family. The project, written/co-executive produced by Brian Gallivan, was among the pilots in serious consideration for a series pickup at CBS this season, said to be one of the strongest on the comedy side at the network in years.
