CBS Backs Comedy Project from HUMANITAS Trustee Jenny Bicks
Top auspices behind two of the most popular HBO comedy series of the past two decades — Entourage creator/executive producer Doug Ellin and Sex And The City executive producer Jenny Bicks — are teaming for a new comedy project at CBS.
Created by Bicks based on an idea by Ellin and Joey Boukadakis, I hear the untitled single-camera comedy centers on a successful young couple who find themselves starting an unconventional family when a threesome leads to a pregnancy. Bicks and Ellin executive produce alongside Teri Weinberg (Nat Geo’s Killing franchise, Saints & Strangers). Boukadakis will co-executive produce.
CBS TV Studios, where Ellin’s company Halyard Park is under an overall deal, is the studio.
Former The Big C executive producer Bicks is currently re-writing Drama, Whitney Cummings’ HBO comedy pilot, and supervising TV Land’s First Wives Club.
