The last we heard, Sarah Michelle Gellar developing a family comedy about the lives of parents when their children are out of the house exec produced by Don't Trust the B's David Hemingson and Margaret Riley. That project has seemingly failed to move forward...but when one door closes another apparently opens because now the unexpected comedy pairing of Robin Williams and SMG may be gracing our small screens!
The CBS single-camera comedy is called Crazy Ones. The show will focus on the family-run Roberts and Roberts Advertising Agency. Mr. Williams is set to play Simon Roberts and Smidge will play his intense, driven and overly practical adult daughter Sydney. Boston Legal's David E. Kelley will be writing and Jason Winer (Modern Family, 1600 Penn) will be directing the pilot.
Hope it gets picked up! Sounds fun. Robin Williams is a legend and we all know Smidge has some uncanny comedic timing. Fingers crossed!
