Jim Gaffigan Sells a Show to CBS, Leslye Headland Sells to NBC


Jim Gaffigan and Peter Tolan (Rescue Me creator, Larry Sanders Show writer) have sold a single-camera comedy to CBS. (Hot Pilot.) This comes over ten years after Welcome to New York, Jim’s first attempt at creating and starring in his own show. The still untitled project would be based loosely on Gaffigan’s life, with the comedian starring as a father of five who lives in a 2-bedroom New York City apartment and, I assume, spends hours making jokes about the food in his kitchen.
