CBS Continues Multicamera Push With Magazine Comedy Pilot
CBS is making good on its push for multicamera comedies.
The network has picked up half-hour The Great Indoors to pilot, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
The comedy revolves around an adventure reporter who must adapt to the times when he becomes the boss of a group of millennials in the digital department of a magazine.
Tosh.0's Mike Gibbons will pen the script and exec produce the CBS Television Studios multicamera comedy.
Great Indoors marks CBS' fourth multicamera comedy pilot order this season as new network topper Glenn Geller has been looking for a "big family multicam." It joins Superior Donuts, the Kevin James straight-to-series entry and The Kicker, from the 30 Rock/Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt producers.
Great Indoors is the network's sixth comedy pilot overall and joins hybrid entries My Time/Your Time and the untitled Butler/Hope/O'Shannon at the network. CBS currently is the only broadcast network without a single-camera comedy this pilot season.
