Affleck and Damon will executive produce through their company Pearl Street Films, along with Dave Becky and Josh Lieberman of 3 ARTS. Deadline first reported the news.

Tom Papa (The Colin Quinn Show, Inside Amy Schumer) will star in the half-hour comedy, as a man who undergoes a career change and leaves his life on the road to spend more time at home with his family. It is based on Papa’s stand-up and Matt Damon’s experiences. 20th Century Fox TV will produce.

It’s hardly Damon and Affleck’s first foray into TV — the pair brought Project Greenlight to HBO in the early 2000s and also partnered on Push, Nevada for ABC.
