CBS Developing New Comedies ‘Hot Sauce’ and Untitled Show by ‘Difficult People’s Scott King

By

CBS has some new comedies in the works, including a multi-cam show from Difficult People showrunner Scott King. According to Deadline, the network has given a script commitment to an untitled show by King produced by Johnny Galecki’s Alcide Bava Productions, which follows “a type-A, emotionally reserved newlywed who invites his wife’s twin sister to stay with them and suddenly finds himself in a world of over-sharing, and a third wheel in his own marriage.” Additionally, Galecki is also developing a half-hour comedy based on A.J. Jacobs’s 2009 bestselling book The Year of Living Biblically, but a writer has not yet been attached to the project.

Elsewhere at CBS, Nick Weiss (Drunk Wedding) and actor Gary Lundy are developing a half-hour comedy called Hot Sauce, which centers on “a high-powered, no-nonsense mom who relocates her family to small-town Louisiana to work for the most popular hot sauce company in the world. There she finds herself pitted against a culture and community she doesn’t want infiltrating her family.” The project is co-written by Weiss and Lundy, and Weiss will direct the pilot should it move forward at CBS.
