Comedy writers-exec producers Joe Port and Joe Wiseman, who are coming off an overall deal at 20th Century Fox TV, have closed a two-year overall pact at CBS TV Studios to develop and supervise projects. Under the 20th TV pact, the duo served as executive producers on the studio’s Fox comedy New Girl and most recently worked on CBS’ The Crazy Ones. Repped by UTA and Myman Greenspan, Port and Wiseman met while they were both assistants on the 1999 UPN animated comedy Dilbert and went on to serve as story editors on NBC’s multi-camera Just Shoot Me. They also worked on NBC’s 1600 Penn as writers and exec producers, were co-exec producers on NBC’s Perfect Couples and consulting producers on The Office.
