CBS picks up 'Tick Tock'

Single-camera comedy lands cast-contingent order

CBS has kicked off the official broadcast pilot pickup season with an order for comedy "Tick Tock."

The single-camera project, whose pilot pickup is said to be cast-contingent, hails from CBS Paramount Network TV.

"Tick Tock" centers on an unconventional single mom in her 30s who decides to focus all of her energy on finding love.

It was penned by Bill Kunstler ("The War at Home") on spec, which drew interest from three studios, landing at CBS Par.

Kunstler is repped by Paradigm.
