Rob Riggle and Robert Smigel Teaming Up for New CBS Comedy


Rob Riggle, formerly of The Daily Show and SNL, is attached to a new show for CBS written by legendary SNL and Triumph the Insult Comic Dog writer Robert Smigel. Star/writer combos don’t get much more promising than that.

The show, which is still untitled, “centers on a gregarious guy (Riggle) who winds up as a real estate agent working for the nerd he made fun of in high school.” If there’s anything Riggle plays well, its big, gregarious guys. Here’s hoping this one makes it to air and can help counterbalance the Chuck Lorre juggernauts of mediocrity currently dominating the CBS comedy lineup.
