Fun - Comedy Pilot Starring Becki Newton and Michael Urie Passed Over by CBS

Per Deadline's exclusive, CBS has passed on comedy pilot Fun starring Ugly Betty's Becki Newton and Michael Urie.

Fun is described as a life-long love story between a brother and a sister, played by Urie and Newton, who always encourage each other to have fun – no matter what hardship life is currently serving up. FUN celebrates life – in spite of the fact that the family business is a funeral home. As they say in their family: “You can’t spell funeral without f-u-n.” The brother returns to his Pennsylvania hometown to help his sister run the struggling business after his emotional and devastating break-up with… show business.

This comes after CBS also passed on high profile legal drama The Lincoln Laywer from David E. Kelley a few days ago.
