"Greg is truly one of the funniest people I know and certainly one of the elite comedy showrunners," CBS Television Studios president David Stapf said in announcing the pact. "He is a rare creative talent who has created successful shows in both the multi- and single-camera form across a variety of networks. It's exciting to add a star producer of his caliber to our roster."
