The show would be single-camera (no audience) and star Romano as a billionaire who has six months to live. He reportedly pitched the show idea to HBO months ago, but talks between the network and FOX productions have only recently begun. Initial negotiations are for ten episodes. Dennis Klein, co-creator of The Larry Sanders Show, has already been tapped to write the show. It's being executive produced by the Joel Surnow and Bob Cochran, executive producers of 24.

I don't get HBO, so it doesn't matter, but... I can't picture Ray Romano as a billionaire. He's too everydaysortaguy.

I dunno, I'm getting sick of how so many stars of hit network sitcoms are getting shows on HBO
