A couple of months ago, The WB made a blind commitment to Jerry Bruckheimer for a sitcom pilot, one of the “CSI” and “Pirates of the Caribbean” producer’s first forays into the genre.
Not long after that, Jerry Bruckheimer TV got another pilot deal with CBS for a comedy from writer Marsh McCall (“Just Shoot Me,” “The Naked Truth”). The experience with McCall must have been good, because the WB pilot will be co-written by Marsh’s brother, Ross.
Aaron Peters (“The Tom Green Show,” “Just Shoot Me”) will team with Ross McCall to write the script for the untitled WB project. It concerns three lifelong friends who hire a life coach to help them in their romantic lives.
Marsh McCall will supervise the writing of the pilot and serve as an executive producer with Bruckheimer TV’s Jonathan Littman. Peters and Ross McCall will be co-exec producers.
The sitcom project is one of two pilots Bruckheimer has in the works at The WB. The other is a drama about a 17-year-old prodigy who passes the bar and starts practicing law.
