CBS has put in development two Sony TV-produced single-camera comedies from writing duos. The untitled Siegal/Morgan project, written by former 30 Rock writers-producers Josh Siegal and Dylan Morgan, is based on an original idea by producer Aaron Kaplan of Kapital Entertainment. The workplace comedy, which has a scripted commitment with penalty, is set at the CDC and follows a dysfunctional investigation team led by a single woman who is great at saving lives but bad at having one of her own. UTA-repped Siegal and Morgan, who are under an overall deal at Sony TV, executive produce with Kaplan who has upcoming comedy series Friends With Better Lives on CBS.
The untitled Lisbe/Reger project, written on spec by Michael Lisbe and Nate Reger, is a young ensemble comedy with a mystery element that hints at the futures of all five characters. The duo are executive producing with Jaime Tarses of Sony TV-based Fanfare. Lisbe and Reger, repped by ICM Partners and 3 Arts, previously worked on CBS comedy series $#*! My Dad Says and How To Be A Gentleman and wrote the network’s 2012 Martin Lawrence pilot.
