Ben Affleck and Matt Damon are executive producers on More Time with Family, a new comedy that just landed at CBS with a put-pilot commitment.  Starring comedian Tom Papa and written by co-writers Cathy Yuspa and Josh Goldsmith (King of Queens, ‘Til Death), More Time with Family is based on Papa’s stand-up and Damon’s own experiences.  As Deadline reports, the story centers on “a guy (Papa) who changes his career and gives up a life on the road to spend more time at home with his family — but when he gets there, he realizes no one asked him to do that.”  Affleck’s production company, Pearl Street Films, is venturing further into television territory, with More Time with Family following on the heels of Fox’s crime drama, The Middle Man, the pilot of which Affleck will direct.
