'Entourage' Alum Teams With CBS for Family Comedy

Come at me, bro... with hugs!

Kevin Connolly

While the "Entourage" movie is a ways away, series co-star Kevin Connolly has been keeping busy. CBS has given the greenlight to the actor's multi-camera family comedy "I Love You Like A Brother." The network evidently loves the "Entourage" boys, as Connolly will be the second cast member to attempt a series with The Eye after last year's Kevin Dillon series "How To Be A Gentleman" was cut after nine episodes.

The new series will star Connolly as the youngest of three brothers who strives to improve the relationship between himself and his non-communicative, emotionally distant family. The story is semi-autobiographical, based on pilot writer Tad Safran's own family.

In addition to starring in the pilot, Connolly will produce, teaming with comedy veteran Rob Long ("Cheers", "Sullivan & Son") as well as Kim and Eric Tannenbaum("Two and a Half Men")'s production company The Tannenbaum Co and CBS TV Studios.

Writer Safran and the production team are currently collaborating on a separate project at Showtime, a single-camera dark comedy entitled "The Death Pact." Co-written by Safran and Long, this series would be centered on a group of middle-aged friends who see their unfulfilling lives upended when an old acquaintance returns. Cool story, bro.
