Veteran writer-producer Bill Kunstler has sold a comedy project to CBS, which will be produced by CBS TV Studios. Additionally, he has inked a blind script deal at Warner Bros Television with Topher Grace attached to executive produce through his production company Sargent Hall Prods. The CBS project is based on Musings of a Middle Child, a manuscript by Bruce Hopman, with whom Kunstler worked during his early days in advertising. It centers on a man suffering from middle-child syndrome who is determined to spare his own middle child of the same fate. With the project, Kunstler will be going for pilot No.2 this season. He already has one in the running at CBS: the cast-contingent Tick-Tock, which was rolled from last year. It is also produced by CBS Studios.
Paradigm-repped Kunstler, whose resume includes more than 15 series, most recently worked as a co-executive producer on another CBS/CBS Studios project, the Jenna Elfman-starring series Accidentally on Purpose.
