The network has picked up a script called Us & Him, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
Written by Jake Wilson and Sas Goldberg, the comedy is based on their lives and centers on two co-dependent best friends who must come to terms with change brought on by marriage and family starting to get in the way of their relationship.
Wilson and Goldberg will pen the script and executive produce the Sony Pictures Television comedy. Will Gluck and Richie Schwartz will exec produce via their studio-based Olive Bridge Entertainment banner.
Last year, Wilson and Goldberg co-wrote and co-starred in their first feature, Are You Joking? Wilson directed the pic, which was distributed this fall by New Wave Entertainment.
