Anna Faris Starring in New Chuck Lorre CBS Pilot
I’m finding myself between a metaphorical rock and a hard place after the news came out Anna Faris was cast in the latest CBS pilot to come from Chuck Lorre, the creator of such major sitcoms as Two and a Half Men and The Big Bang Theory. One of the first things I tell people about myself when we’re meeting for the first time is I am not a fan of Lorre or anything he creates. His sense of humor is simply not for me and it is reflected in his productions. Just to be clear: this is just my own opinion. On the flipside, I generally enjoy Anna Faris; she’s a funny woman.
I’m sure you can understand why I feel caught in the middle. Faris has shied away from television, for the most part, so this is a rather large deal. But again, putting her on a Lorre production might neuter her comedy abilities, at least as far as I’m concerned. We could have another hit on our hands here, another Big Bang Theory. According to Deadline, Lorre co-wrote this on spec with Two and a Half Men executive producer Eddie Gorodetsky and story editor Gemma Baker. It centers on a newly sober single mom (Faris) and she attempts to pull her life together in Napa Valley.
The pilot, called Mom, comes from Warner Bros TV and Chuck Lore Productions. It was given the pilot order last month. Should Mom make it to series order, I actually might hope it finds a strong audience, if only so CBS can find a sitcom to take over for How I Met Your Mother and they can finally put that aging series to rest. Wow, now that I’ve seen that typed out it seems rather horrible. I’m sorry HIMYM. I take it all back. I still love you and no Chuck Lorre comedy could replace you.
