'Worst Week' star joins CBS comedy pilot

Kyle Bornheimer to topline untitled Bays/Thomas project

Kyle Bornheimer has been tapped to topline in CBS' untitled Bays/Thomas comedy pilot.

The untitled Bays/Thomas multicamera comedy -- penned by "How I Met Your Mother" writers Carter Bays, Craig Thomas, Kourtney Kang and Joe Kelly -- revolves around an unmarried couple and their friends in Pittsburgh. Bornheimer will play Tommy, the lovable, slightly unkempt and highly entertaining half of the couple who means well but doesn't always finish what he starts

For Bornheimer, the casting is in second position to ABC's midseason comedy series "Romantically Challenged."

The new pilot reunites him with CBS, where he landed his first lead series role on the critically praised but short-lived comedy "Worst Week."

Repped by CAA and Flutie, Bornheimer next appears in the feature "She's Out of My League."
