News   Seminar's Jerry O’Connell Will Develop and Star in Upcoming CBS Sitcom Film and television star Jerry O'Connell, who is currently making his Broadway debut in the world premiere of Seminar by Theresa Rebeck, is developing a CBS sitcom in which he will star, according to Deadline.com.

CBS has bought the untitled multi-camera family sitcom, which is inspired by Adam Mansbach's bedtime book for parents, "Go the F**k To Sleep." O'Connell, Mansbach and Jeff Astrof will share credit on the potential series.

Astrof and Mansbach will co-write the script, which will center around a struggling writer who is thrown into the spotlight after his tongue-in-cheek children's book becomes an unexpected hit. CBS TV Studios and 3 Arts will produce.

O'Connell was last seen on CBS as Pete Kaczmarek in "The Defenders." His film and television credits also include "Sliders," "My Secret Identity," "Stand by Me," "Kangaroo Jack," "Crossing Jordan," "Scream 2" and "Jerry Maguire," among others.
