Dan Harmon's planned Fox sitcom is getting the competition it needs to ensure it will never reach its ratings potential.
Following last week's news that Harmon is developing multi-camera comedy to squeeze in between American Idols, now TVLine reports the Community creator has also signed a blind script pact with CBS to similarly develop a half-hour series. Nothing is yet known about the premise, but like the Fox pilot, this comedy too is said to be shrinking away from the complexly cinematic setups of Community and settling into the broadly lit comforts of multiple cameras. But really, what else would you expect from CBS? They only pauses their laugh track if there's a million-dollar prize or a murder.
