Jason Biggs heading to CBS?

Mitch Hurwitz and Jason BiggsAside from a couple of TV shows in the 1990s (Drexell's Class and Total Security -- ever heard of them?), most of Jason Biggs' career has been in the film industry -- most notably as Jim Levenstein in the American Pie series.

Now it looks like he might be headed back to TV with a CBS comedy about a family that "loves too much." He's in final negotiations to headline the as-yet-untitled project, which has received a pilot commitment and an order for six additional scripts.

The show revolves around adult siblings and their parents, all of whom are over-involved in each others' lives.

Ordinarily, that wouldn't be enough to get me fired up, but the kicker is the guy helming the project -- Mitch Hurwitz. Sound familiar? He created Arrested Development. Hurwitz (pictured, along with Biggs) is co-writing the script with Arrested scribe James Vallely.

Ok, I'm officially excited about this project. I can picture the voiceover in the opening credits: "Now the story of a family of adult kids and their parents..." But CBS...?

I'll watch anything Mitch puts his hands on. And for me, this is the CBS of How I Met Your Mother, so it makes sense from that POV.

Nothing would make me more excited. Everyone says I look like the Pie Humper (thus his return to the spotlight will incite more of this, I'm sure). ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT is my favorite comedy show of all time. I hope this new show lives up to the hype!
