Take an award-winning and wildly-popular comedian, writer and late-night host...
Add a successful writer and producer of 'The Office' and 'Everybody Loves Raymond'...
Top it off with a writer and producer of 'Friends'...
The powers that be at CBS have united this mighty trio of Craig Ferguson ('The Late Late Show'), Adam Chase ('Everybody Loves Raymond') and Aaron Shure ('Friends') under the banner of Ferguson's Green Mountain West production company. The challenge? Comedy projects! Seems like they got the right men for the job.
The trio have sold two multi-camera comedies to CBS Television Studios. Traditional sitcom fare is on the docket, but if anyone knows how to make that genre successful it is Chase and Shure.
The project being written and Exec Produced by Chase remains untitled. The project is about a group of males in their early thirties who try to defy convention and remain single, despite everyone around them getting married. As a single man about to attend FOUR weddings in October, I think I will tune in to this one.
The untitled project written and Exec Produced by Shure revolves around a reformed, grown-up party animal learning how to be a family man while living next door to his ex-wife.
To top off all of this, Green Mountain West is also collaborating with CBS for unscripted projects in the future. The Eye Network is certainly getting their money's worth out of funnyman Ferguson.
