Deadline reports that CBS is developing a new, half-hour comedy, Adult Children. Gabrielle Allan (Scrubs) and Jennifer Crittenden (Seinfeld) are writers and executive producers. Aaron Kaplan will also executive produce, with Wendy Trilling producing.
The project, from CBS TV Studios, is inspired by Trilling’s and Allan’s dads. It centers on a sunny, single, self-possessed woman in her thirties who has her neat and tidy life turned upside down when her washed-up father, a self-described seventies rock icon, forces himself back into her life and reconnects her with a collection of emotionally challenged half-siblings.
