CBS orders comedy pilot 'Millionaire'


UPDATED 7:42 p.m. PT March 3

CBS has picked up "Single White Millionaire," a comedy pilot from "The Winner" creator Ricky Blitt.

The multicamera comedy, which has received a cast-contingent order, centers on an unassuming millionaire in his thirties who is ready to settle down.

Warner Bros. Television is producing "Millionaire," which was written on spec.

"Family Guy" alum Blitt most recently collaborated with "Guy" creator Seth MacFarlane on Fox's comedy series "Winner," which starred Rob Corddry as a successful fortysomething man who looks back at the time when he was a 32-year-old slacker living with his parents.

The pickup for "Millionaire" follows CBS' pilot orders last week of the dramas "The Mentalist," "Ny-Lon," "Mythological X" and "Can Openers."
