The single camera comedy will star Gaffigan as a happily married New York City father of five, just as he is in real life. Peter Tolan remains as writer and executive producer along with Gaffigan, while Michael Wimer and Alex Murray will also executive-produce. The project, from Sony Pictures Television, is being developed in 2013-14 to air possibly in the 2014-15 season.

A stand-up comedian, Gaffigan most recently appeared on Portlandia and Royal Pains.

(Full disclosure: TVGuide.com is owned by CBS.)
