Jerry O'Connell to Star in Untitled CBS Family Sitcom
The story will center on a writer who unexpectedly becomes a parenting expert after his tongue-in-cheek book becomes a surprise hit. The show will be loosely based on Adam Mansbach's book, Go The F**k* to Sleep, which is described as a "bedtime book for parents." Jeff Astrof and Adam Mansbach will write the pilot script. Jerry O'Connell will also share a story credit for hatching the idea with Jeff Astrof and Adam Mansbach. Jerry O'Connell is a father of two-year-old twins himself, and had been searching for a comedy project like this, when he came across Adam Mansbach's book.
