CBS has pulled “Living Biblically” from its primetime schedule, with reruns of “The Big Bang Theory” to run in its place.
Sources say the sitcom could return at a later date.
The sitcom follows a man who decides to live as instructed in the Bible, based on A.J. Jacobs’ book “The Year of Living Biblically.” Jay R. Ferguson stars with Lindsey Kraft, Ian Gomez, David Krumholtz, Tony Rock, and Camryn Manheim. “The Big Bang Theory” star Johnny Galecki executive produces with writer Patrick Walsh and Andrew Haas and Spencer Medof.
The comedy is produced by Alcide Bava Productions, in association with CBS Television Studios and Warner Bros. Television.
CBS renewed 11 of its series earlier this week, totaling 17 series renewals for next year so far.
As far as pilots go, the network has ordered eight comedy pilots, including the revival of “Murphy Brown.” Other comedy pilots include “25,” “Fam,” “History of Them,” “I Mom So Hard,” “Pandas in New York,” “Welcome to the Neighborhood,” and the untitled Austen Earl and Tim McAuliffe project.
CBS drama pilots in the works include the “Cagney and Lacey” reboot starring Sarah Drew and Michelle Hurd, “Chiefs,” “The Code,” “F.B.I.,” “God Friended Me,” “LA Confidential,” “Magnum P.I.,” “Main Justice,” “Murder” and “Red Line.”
