Anna Faris to Star in Chuck Lorre’s New CBS Pilot ‘Mom’


The House Bunny and Scary Movie star Anna Faris has just been cast as the lead in Chuck Lorre’s new CBS pilot Mom, TV Line reports. Mom will be a multi-camera show starring Faris as a newly sober single mom trying to put her life back together in Napa Valley. Chuck Lorre, the man behind CBS’s mega-hit sitcoms Two and a Half Men, The Big Bang Theory, and Mike & Molly, is co-creating and producing Mom alongside his Two and a Half Men cohorts Eddie Gorodetsky and Gemma Baker. Given Lorre’s strong relationship and track record with CBS, this looks like it’ll be a sure thing this pilot season, making it a frontrunner for actually making it to the air next season. So, look for this show to be clogging up your parents’ DVRs and crushing whatever’s left of NBC’s current sitcom lineup come September.
