CBS Picks Up Another Show Based on a Twitter Account


CBS is already known for its crime procedurals and its Chuck Lorre comedies, but it looks like it’s also about to be known for basing shows on joke Twitter accounts:

Following on the successful launch of its Twitter-inspired comedy $#*! My Dad Says” last week, CBS has made a script deal for “Shh … Don’t Tell Steve,” based on a Twitter feed by the same name.The CBS version of “Don’t Tell Steve” is about man who deals with an immature roommate. Like “$#*! My Dad Says,” the Twitter feed’s premise is a guy who secretly Tweets the actions of somebody he lives with (in this case, his jobless, drunken roommate). The feed has drawn more than 13,000 followers.
