Family Comedy From ‘Rules’ Creator Tom Hertz Lands At CBS With Put Pilot

Deadline says:

On the heels of Rules Of Engagement‘s strong return last night, the series’ creator Tom Hertz has landed a put pilot commitment from CBS for a new multi-camera comedy. The family show, which had multiple networks bidding, marks a reunion of all auspices behind Rules: Hertz as creator/executive producer, CBS as network and Sony Pictures TV and studio-based Happy Madison as production companies. The untitled comedy is a multi-generational show about family, and how people’s childhoods influence the decisions they make and what they seek as adults. The project stems from a three-year overall deal Hertz signed with Sony TV in June with the goal to focus on development. He continues to run Rules in its current sixth season and is also directing episodes of the show, which has been sold in broadcast syndication for a fall 2012 launch.
