The project would be based on Damon’s experience and the stand-up comedy of Tom Papa, who would star
Ben Affleck and Matt Damon are teaming up yet again — this time for the small screen.
Affleck and Damon are executive producing the comedy “More Time With Family,” which has been ordered with a put-pilot agreement from CBS.
The project would star comedian Tom Papa, and is based on both Papa’s stand-up routine and Affleck’s experiences. Papa would star as a guy who changes his career and gives up life on the road to be with his family — only to find that no one asked him to do so.
The multi-camera, half-hour comedy will be written by Papa, along with Josh Goldsmith and Cathy Yuspa (“The King of Queens”).
The project comes via 20th Century Fox Television, as well as Pearl Street Films. Yuspa and Goldsmith are also executive producing, as are Dave Becky and Josh Lieberman of 3 Arts.
