Ben Affleck and Matt Damon have struck a deal with CBS to develop a half-hour comedy series starring comedian Tom Papa. Fresh on the heels of his just-released comedy album and special Freaked Out, the show – titled More Time with Family – would find Papa portraying a father who decides to ditch his life on the road for a more traditional life at home, according to Deadline. 20th Century Fox TV has entered a put pilot deal, which means if CBS doesn’t push the show to series, they’ll have to pay penalties. There was reportedly a heated bidding war for the show.
