Pilot Scoop: CBS Orders Comedy from Melissa McCarthy, Starring Her Husband

CBS has ordered a comedy pilot to be produced by Mike & Molly leading lady Melissa McCarthy and star her husband.

The Bridesmaids scene-stealer will co-executive produce the potential series, which will be co-written by as well as star her better half, Ben Falcone.

The untitled project centers around a single 37-year-old man who loses everything in the real estate market collapse and finds himself back in his childhoood home with his parents. Larry Dorf (Mad) will pen the pilot with Falcone.

Of course this isn’t the first time that McCarthy and Falcone have worked together. He played the air marshal that McCarthy sits next to (and takes quite a shine to) in Bridesmaids.
