CBS Orders Pilot From ‘How I Met Your Mother’ Producer

Single-camera comedy will revolve around a young man who befriends a group of more experienced males in a short-term rental complex

CBS is getting an early jump on the 2013-14 pilot season.


With the fall 2012 season still months away, the network has already placed a pilot order for a single-camera comedy from "How I Met Your Mother" producer Rob Greenberg, marking the first pilot order from CBS for the 2013-14 season.

The pilot, "Ex-Men," revolves around a young man who moves into a short-term rental complex and befriends the older, more experienced males residing there.

Greenberg is writing and directing the pilot, and also executive-producing, along with "Two and a Half Men" executive producers Eric and Kim Tannenbaum.
