Showtime Orders 'Mating' Pilot from HUMANITAS Trustee Jason Katims

Showtime is eying its first pilot pickup of 2016, giving a cast-contingent order to Mating (working title), an anthology half-hour comedy project from Stu Zicherman (The Americans) and Jason Katims (Friday Night Lights, Parenthood).

Written/executive produced by Six Degrees co-creator Zicherman, Mating explores modern dating and relationships, with each season chronicling a different protagonist’s journey. The first season-long arc will center on a recently divorced guy who tries to evolve and connect one date at a time. Search is currently underway for the lead, whose casting the pilot order is contingent on.

Mating, which was originally set up at Showtime in summer 2014, is a co-production between Universal TV and Showtime. True Jack Prods’ Katims and Michelle Lee are executive producing alongside Zicherman.
