CBS Reorders ‘Superior Donuts’ Pilot Starring Jermaine Fowler

Back in February, CBS ordered a new comedy pilot starring Jermaine Fowler, and now they’re giving the project another shot. According to Deadline, the network has re-ordered the multi-cam Superior Donuts pilot based on the play by Tracy Letts, which follows “the relationship between the owner of a donut shop, his new young employee and their patrons in a gentrifying neighborhood of Chicago.” Fowler will play the new employee, while the other starring role has not been cast yet. Fowler will serve as a co-executive producer on the series, and David Koechner and Maz Jobrani also have starring roles. Fowler hasn’t had much luck pilot-wise between the original Superior Donuts and last year’s Delores & Jermaine at ABC, so hopefully the third time’s the charm.
