CBS Network has ordered a pilot script of the sitcom The Games, produced by New Media Vision.
The Games is a family sitcom that centers on a young boy whose everyday life is accompanied by the running commentary of two sports presenters. The American version of The Games is being written by Dan Kopelman (Malcolm in the Middle, Me, Myself & I). Todd Lituchy will serve as executive producer for the series along with Aaron Kaplan and Michael Strahan.
The deal was negotiated by New Media Vision on behalf of Red Arrow productions, which represents the original Norwegian series that is produced by Ape&Bjørn for NRK.
