Joel McHale might be headed to CBS. According to The Hollywood Reporter, McHale has signed on to star in a multi-cam pilot at the network called The Great Indoors, which centers on “an adventure reporter who must adapt to the times when he becomes the boss to a group of millennials in the digital department of the magazine.” Here’s more on McHale’s character from THR:
McHale will star as Joel, an outdoorsy guy’s guy with a sardonic sense of humor. The longtime star reporter for The Great Outdoors magazine, Joel has climbed mountains, confronted bears and led a life of excitement and adventure. But when he’s sidelined by an injury, he’s forced to take a desk job in the publication’s digital and social media department, surrounded by a team of millennials who view him as an exotic and ancient oddity from another place and time.
Tosh.0’s Mike Gibbons wrote the pilot and will executive produce.
