CBS Orders Comedy Pilot From ‘How I Met Your Mother’ Producer
by Lacey Rose, Lesley Goldberg
CBS is getting a jump on the 2013-14 development season.
The single-camera “Ex-Men” will be written and directed by How I Met Your Mother producer-director Rob Greenberg and hails from “Two and a Half Men” executive producers Eric and Kim Tannenbaum.
[It] centers on a young guy who finds camaraderie living among the more experienced guys he meets in a short-term rental complex.
Two points to note here:
- The premise – young man buddying up with other guys in a “short-term rental complex” – is as high concept as you can get, especially to showbiz types in L.A., who are constantly moving in and out of places like that (hi, Oakwood Garden Apartments!), usually during divorces.
- Ain’t no newbies involved.
As the old saying goes, “Success breeds success.” So start breeding.
