In this difficult world we live in, some small comforts remain timeless and ineffable, such as puppies, apple pie and, of course, true love. But would you want to watch a TV show about them?

Well, CBS hopes so, because according to Variety they've given the green light to 'True Love,' which, if nothing else, will help dispel any rumors that the network is heartless.

Tarses will also be joined on the effort by his sister, producer Jamie Tarses, who previously served as the head of entertainment at both ABC and NBC, where she was instrumental in the development of another sitcom about a group of young people intermingling in New York, 'Friends.' And that series seemed to do okay.

Now if we could just convince them to greenlight that show about apple pie ...
