Greg Garcia’s super project is getting a new lease on life…
CBS has ordered a new version of the 44-year-old Latino television director, producer and writer’s 2013 comedy Super Clyde.
After abruptly cancelling Garcia’s most recent series The Millers midway through its second season, CBS has given the green light to Super Clyde.
Originally piloted in 2013, Super Clyde — about a meek, unassuming fast-food worker who finds his calling — had Harry Potter star Rupert Grint attached and was ultimately passed over for a series pickup in favor of The Millers.
CBS made the pilot available online in October 2013 after a request by Garcia.
Super Clyde will remain a multi-camera pilot and be written and exec produced by Garcia via his CBS Television Studios-based Amigos de Garcia banner. It’s unclear if any of the original cast, producers or director will return, though Garcia praised director Mike Fresco‘s work on the original.)
Garcia sold seven projects this season and focused his time developing other writers. After the cancellation of The Millers, he was suddenly available to take a new stab at Super Clyde.
Garcia’s credits include serving as the creator/executive producer of several long-running sitcoms, including Yes, Dear, My Name Is Earl and Raising Hope.
Garcia has also worked for the series Family Matters and as a consulting producer on Family Guy.
