Greg Garcia could end up with two comedies on CBS next season…
The network has handed out pilot orders for both of the 42-year-old Latino television producer’s scripts, one single- and one multi-camera project.
The first project getting an order for Garcia, the creator of My Name Is Earl and Raising Hope, is Super Clyde, whichcenters on a meek, unassuming fast food worker who decides to become a super hero.
Meanwhile, Garcia’s untitled multi-camera project centers on a recently divorced man whose life is complicated when his parents decide to move in with him.
Both projects are written and executive produced by Garcia, who moved from his longtime home 20th Century Fox Television to CBS Studios last May in a lucrative four-year deal.
The double pickup almost assures Garcia’s return to CBS’ primetime lineup seven years after the end of the network’s comedy series Yes, Dear, which the Emmy-winner co-created.
Garcia’s commitment to Fox’s Raising Hope, now in its third season, concludes at the end of this season.
