According to The Hollywood Reporter, the star of the hilarious film “Bridesmaids” and TV show “Mike and Molly” has sold another project to her home network, CBS. Here is the scoop:
The spec script centers on David Gell, who learns that there’s no place like home … unless home is your parents’ house and you’re 37 years old.
CBS is moving in with Melissa McCarthy … again.
The Mike & Molly network has bought an untitled half-hour comedy script from Larry Dorf (MadTV) and McCarthy’s husband and Bridesmaids co-star Ben Falcone.
The project, which hails from Warner Bros. Television, centers on the character of David Gell, who learns that there’s no place like home … unless home is your parents’ house and you’re 37 years old.
Falcone and Dorf, Groundlings alums who co-wrote the spec project, will have supervising producer and co-writer credits. McCarthy is taking a nonwriting co-executive producer credit.
The news comes some four months after Emmy winner McCarthy and Falcone sold a multicamera comedy about a woman in her mid-40s who has a midlife crisis to CBS. The pair is on board to co-write and co-executive produce.
McCarthy and Falcone are repped by CAA.
