CBS Orders Pilot for U.S. Version of Israeli Comedy ‘Little Mom’ (VIDEO)
Hot off the heels of Showtime’s successful series ‘Homeland,’ based on Israel’s popular show ‘Hatufim’, Israeli TV shows have become a sought after commodity in Hollywood.
Now CBS is trying to find their own new hit, having green-lighted a new comedy based on the Israeli series ‘Haverot’ (‘Little Mom’ in English), Deadline reports.
The project will be written by Julie Rottenberg and Elisa Zuritsky who last season adapted another Israeli comedy for CBS, Mother’s Day, which went to pilot starring Debra Messing.
Deadline writes, “The new project revolves around three moms who live in a Brooklyn high-rise and how they help each other stay sane (or try to) as they juggle their friendships, marriages and kids.”
