to SitcomsOnline Digest! This week, we're learning (a little bit) about
the pilots for the fall, some news of a big renewal that is supposedly
in the works for The Big Bang Theory, and more. Let's get going!
IFC announced that it has greenlit Living With Yourself, a new scripted comedy series created, written and executive produced by Emmy and Peabody award-winner Tim Greenberg (The Daily Show) and executive produced by Anthony Bregman and Jeff Stern of Likely Story (Sing Street, Foxcatcher, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind). Jeff Blitz is attached to direct (The Office, Parks and Recreation, Table 19) and will also serve as executive producer. IFC has ordered eight episodes of Living With Yourself, expected to debut in 2018. Living With Yourself
is a single-camera comedy about George Elliot, a man who is burned out
and facing an impasse in both his personal and professional life. When
George undergoes a novel treatment to become a better person, he finds
he's been replaced by a new and improved George - revealing that his own
worst enemy is himself. Told from multiple perspectives with
intersecting storylines, this fresh and inventive philosophical comedy
asks: do we really want to be better?
