CBS is "developing a half-hour comedy based on the life of ESPN radio and TV host Colin Cowherd," according to Michael Schneider of DAILY VARIETY. Bill Martin and Mike Schiff will be the writers and Exec Producers of the sitcom, while Eric and Kim Tannenbaum also are Exec Producers. Cowherd also will "serve as a producer" of the show, which comes from CBS TV Studios. Cowherd hosts ESPN Radio's "The Herd With Colin Cowherd," as well as ESPN2's "SportsNation" (DAILY VARIETY, 11/15). HOLLYWOOD REPORTER's James Hibberd reported the Cowherd script "sold as a multi-camera comedy to CBS" (HOLLYWOODREPORTER.com, 11/14).
