Deadline is reporting that CBS has ordered a comedy pilot from creator David E. Kelley, titled Crazy Ones, starring Robin Williams. The series is supposedly a single-camera show, and it will follow a father and daughter duo who works in the world of advertising.
Williams has been focusing on movies lately and mostly abandoning tv projects over the past several years but Kelley must have pulled together quite the pilot for Robin Williams to be willing to jump on board. Casting is still underway for the part of the daughter but obviously Williams would probably be playing the father part.
With shoes like with How I Met Your Mother ending over the next year, and other series like Two and a Half Men and The Big Bang Theory getting up there in age, CBS is going to have to reload its comedy block with quality programming soon enough and having Robin Williams as your star, isn’t a bad start.
