CBS Grabs Pilot Starring Tom Papa, Produced By Matt Damon and Ben Affleck

CBS has landed a sought after comedy pilot from executive producers Ben Affleck and Matt Damon, Deadline reports. The multi-camera sitcom More Time With Family will star standup and radio host Tom Papa as a guy "who changes his career and gives up a life on the road to spend more time at home with his family — but when he gets there, he realizes no one asked him to do that."

The show apparently originated when Papa and Damon worked together on movies The Informant and Behind The Candelabra, and is said to be based both on Papa's standup and Damon's real life experiences. More Time will be written by former King of Queens executive producers Cathy Yuspa and Josh Goldsmith.
