Louis C.K. has sold a comedy to CBS.
The FX series star and former SNL writer is teaming with Spike Feresten (Seinfeld) on the show, which just received a pilot order from the network. The untitled project is an ensemble comedy about “young people trying to achieve their creative dreams in these tough financial times.” It has Louis C.K., Feresten, Gail Berman, Lloyd Braun, and Gene Stein as executive producers. According to one account, Louis C.K. and Feresten originally conceived the project 13 years ago.
Not too much more intel than that at this point, but on Friday there was a slew of ABC and CBS comedy pilots that were ordered that have a bit more detail if you want to check those out.
