CBS Orders Comedy Pilot 'Cuz-Bros' from 'Happy Endings' Creator

 

With a second pilot pick up for the forthcoming season, the fall is looking bright for ‘Happy Endings’ creator David Caspe.

CBS has ordered a pilot for Caspe’s multi-camera comedy ‘Cuz-Bros.’ Caspe will co-write the sitcom alongside Erik Sommers, whose current work includes ‘Community’ and who was previously a writer and EP with Caspe on ‘Happy Endings.’

The show revolves around a smooth operator of a ladies man whose life gets upended when, you guessed it, family interferes. In this case, it’s a cousin, one who is apparently messy, without ambition, and apparently homeless, turning this half-hour comedy into an odd couple vehicle.

Initially, the project was about a stranger who saved the lead’s life, but the stranger transformed into the cousin character. What’s more, the title was changed from the generic ‘Roommates’ to its current spell check-aggravating, hyphenated ‘Cuz-Bros.’

As it turns out, CBS a sitcom ‘The Odd Couple’ in reserve, but the comedy by Matthew Perry and Danny Jacobson has yet to be ordered.

The cult comedy ‘Happy Endings’ endured three critically-successful seasons on ABC before being unceremoniously cancelled. Caspe also had a pilot ordered from NBC for the fall season in the rom-com ‘Marry Me,’ starring Ken Marino and Casey Wilson as an engaged couple who just might be in over their heads.

With ‘Cuz-Bros,’ CBS has now called for nine comedy pilots this year.

Marry Me looks a bit more interesting but I may tune in.
