Silveri making friends at CBS


CBS has picked up a comedy pilot from "Friends" executive producer Scott Silveri, and the CW has handed out a pilot order to "Dash 4 Cash," a comedy set behind the scenes of a reality series.

The Scott Silveri project, from Warner Bros. TV, is a multicamera ensemble about the people who are up all night while the rest of us are sleeping.

Silveri is the writer/executive producer.

"Cash," from CBS Paramount Network TV and Grammnet Prods., is a single-camera comedy that follows six teams participating in a racing reality competition that tests their mettle and brings out the best and worst in each of them.

Boyce Bugliari and Jamie McLaughlin (Fox's "Quintuplets") penned the script and will co-executive produce. Kelsey Grammer and Steve Stark are executive producing.
