TBS has ordered a pilot for a new workplace comedy from Will & Grace creators David Kohan and Max Mutchnick, TVWise has learned.
The untitled project (formerly known as Clipsters) follows a group of kids from high school who ran in different circles but now all work together at a local barbershop called Buzzy’s in Charlestown, Massachusetts. Their dreams may lie across the Charles River in Boston, but for now, their work, their lives, their loves and their worries remain in the town they grew up in.
The comedy, which has been in development at TBS for close to a year, is set up at WB’s cable division Warner Horizon Television and Kohan & Mutchnick’s KoMut Entertainment. Kohan and Mutchnick co-wrote the pilot and will executive produce.
This marks the first cable comedy for the duo, best known for creating NBC’s Will & Grace. The two have continued to work together over the years, however, with their most recent effort being CBS’ Partners, which lasted only one season on the eye.
With the pilot order, the untitled comedy is on its way to joining TBS scripted comedy line up, which largely consists of workplace comedies. Of the four comedies the network has on air, two (Ground Floor and Men At Work) are workplace comedies, while the remaining two (Cougar Town and Sullivan & Son) are ensembles.
