Ben Stiller teams with CBS for TV comedy series

from washingtonpost.com:

JULY 5, 2006

LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - Ben Stiller is teaming with CBS for a comedy project to star his wife, actress Christine Taylor.

Stiller is set to direct and executive produce the pilot and will play a recurring role on the potential series.

CBS has committed to a pilot for the as-yet-untitled project, to be written by Ajay Sahgal. The network is fast-tracking it for potential summer production as part of its aggressive push to court new projects outside the traditional development cycle.

The comedy, being considered for single-camera treatment rather than the three-camera sitcom approach, is based on Taylor's life.

"She is a small-town girl who has found her way into Hollywood but still retains a lot of the values and humility (of her upbringing)," CBS Entertainment president Nina Tassler said. "There are times when she is befuddled by her status -- being an actress married to a big movie star."
