TBS has given a pilot order to Your Family Or Mine, a multi-camera comedy from veteran comedy showrunner Greg Malins, Sony Pictures TV and Jamie Tarses’ studio-based Fanfare. The project, originally set up at ABC during the 2012-13 development season as a single-cam, is based on hit Israeli comedy series Your Family Or Mine? from leading Israeli broadcaster Keshet. Written by Friends and How I Met Your Mother alum Malins, the adaptation centers on Oliver and Kelli who are living proof of the adage “When you marry someone, you don’t just marry them, you marry their whole family.” It is a family comedy with an unusual structure — each episode focuses on a different side of the family: one week featuring the couple dealing with Kelli’s family, the next spent with Oliver’s. Your Family Or Mine?, created by Rubi Duanias, Yaniv Polishuk and produced by Teddy Prods., aired 50 episodes and ranked as the No.1 comedy in Israel. (Watch an English-language trailer below). Malins is executive producing with Tarses, Duanias & Polishuk, Keshet’s Avi Nir & Ran Telem and Teddy’s Tamira Yardeni. Fanfare/Sony and Malins, who has an overall deal at Sony, already are in business with TBS with comedy series Men at Work and Ground Floor, respectively. Tarses’ Fanfare also has two broadcast comedy pilots, Marry Me and Cuz-Bros.
