'Boyhood'-Style Comedy Lands CBS Pilot Pickup
CBS is looking to Boyhood for its next comedy.
The network has handed out a pilot order to Me, Myself and I, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
In the vein of Boyhood, the single-camera comedy examines one man's life over a 50-year span. The comedy will explore three distinct periods in his life — as a 14-year-old in 1991, a 40-year-old in present day and a 65-year-old in 2042.
Dan Kopelman (Galavant, Rules of Engagement) will pen the script and executive produce alongside Kapital Entertainment's Aaron Kaplan and Dana Honor. The comedy hails from Warner Bros. Television, where Kopelman is under an overall deal.
This marks CBS' second pilot order of the young season, joining 9J, 9K, and 9L — which also is produced by Kaplan. Me, Myself and I landed at CBS in August with a hefty pilot-production commitment with multiple networks bidding. It marks the latest collaboration for Kaplan and Kopelman, who previously teamed for last year's CBS Jason Lee pilot What Goes Around Comes Around.
