CBS Buys Two Comedies in Development From ‘Carol’s Second Act’ Creators

Both Series in Contention for Next Season

Sitcom “Carol’s Second Act” with Patricia Heaton only lasted one season on CBS in 2019-20. But the network has bought two potential new sitcoms from its creators, Emily Halpern and Sarah Haskins. The first is a put pilot commitment for “The Smart One,” which revolves around two sisters who are reunited when the smart one – who was supposed to be successful – moves in with the screw-up, who actually became a success. And the second is “Middle Class Murdochs,” which focuses on the owner of a successful carpet store in Ohio who is retiring and must decide which of his four grown children will take over the family business.

Both potential series are from CBS Studios.
