CBS Buys a Show from John Ross Bowie and Kevin Sussman
The Second Coming of Rob is a multi-cam comedy somewhat based on Bowie’s life. It focuses on a newly divorced dude who reunites with his old college buddies in hopes of redoing their 20s. Both Bowie and Sussman play nerds of a certain sort on Big Bang Theory, so they’re all ready pretty tight with the people over at CBS. Bowie, who’s been doing funny things for a while, was one of the first UCB students back in 1998. Sussman, well, Sussman should be best known for playing the powerful Steve in Wet Hot American Summer.
