'The Office's Dan Sterling Is Developing a CBS Comedy Produced by Phil Lord and Chris Miller

phillord_chrismillerA day after announcing its new deal with Will Arnett's production company Electric Avenue, CBS might be adding another new multi-cam show to its lineup. Deadline reports that the network has given a put-pilot commitment to a series by Dan Sterling, who has worked as a director, writer, and producer on The Office, The Sarah Silverman Program, The Daily Show, and King of the Hill. The currently untitled pilot follows "an accommodating, well-meaning, and all-too-compliant man, and a powerful, outspoken, embattled woman who form a new friendship and partnership by which they jointly strive to revolutionize themselves and their lives." Lego Movie directing duo Phil Lord and Chris Miller serve as executive producers for the project; the pair are also behind Will Forte's Fox series Last Man on Earth, which will premiere on the network sometime next year.
