History of Them, I Mom So Hard & Murder - Comedies & Investigative Drama Receive Pilot Orders at CBS



History of Them - Lisa Vidal, Felix Solis & Amit Shah Join CBS Comedy Pilot

Solis will portray Manny Reyes, Luna’s (Villafañe) father who seems tough, but is really a gentle sweetheart. He is conservative and religious.

Vidal will play Tatiana Reyes (“Tati”), Luna’s (Villafañe) mother who looks sweet but is unapologetic, loudmouthed and opinionated. Manny (Solis), her husband, loves her fight and the two argue about politics all of the time, but they’ve been together forever and still love each other.

Shah will play Vikram Johar, a whip smart and sarcastic doctor who has basically been adopted by the Reyes family. He’s been Luna’s best friend since high school when his family moved in next door to the Reyes family.

History of Them, I Mom So Hard & Murder - CBS Orders 3 Pilots

CBS, the network that has been criticized for its lack of inclusion and female voices, is trying to change that in its first pilot season under network president Kelly Kahl.

To that end, CBS has handed out its first pilot orders of the season and has picked up two comedies (History of Them, I Mom So Hard) and a drama (Murder) — all from female writers.

On the comedy front, History of Them is inspired by the life of One Day at a Time revival showrunner Gloria Calderon-Kellet and is described as a multicultural ensemble about how two friends, Luna (Ana Villafane) and Adam, meet and fall in love using their social media as a guide. Calderon-Kellet will pen the script and exec produce via her Sony Pictures Television Studios-based Glo Nation banner. Pamela Fryman (How I Met Your Mother) will exec produce and direct the multicamera/hybrid comedy. Odenkirk Provissiero's Marc Provissiero will exec produce the Sony TV/CBS Television Studios co-production.

I Mom So Hard, based on the web series of the same name written and starring Kristin Hensley and Jen Smedley, explores how two moms illustrate how their friendship gets them through being wives and mothers. Michelle Nader (2 Broke Girls) will pen the script alongside Hensley and Smedley, who will also star in the CBS take. Rob Thomas (iZombie, Veronica Mars) will exec produce via his Warner Bros. Television-based Spondoolie Productions banner. Danielle Stokdyk and Dan Etheridge are also on board to exec produce the multicamera comedy. The half-hour is a co-production between Warners and CBS Television Studios.

On the drama front, Murder is written and exec produced by Amanda Green (Lethal Weapon). The drama is exec produced by Dan Lin (Lethal Weapon, Stephen King’s It, The Lego Movie) via his Warner Bros. Television-based Lin Pictures Banner with newly installed head of television Lindsey Liberatore on board to co-exec produce.

The drama, a co-production between Warners and CBS Studios, is described as a fresh take on the investigative drama that explores crime through the unique and often conflicting perspectives of cops and killers, witnesses and victims, friends and family. Shot like a true crime documentary, the drama invites the audience inside the emotional journey of an investigation, allowing them to discern the truth and judge the suspects' guilt or innocence for themselves.
