Don’t start shining a Bat-signal at your TV just yet, but it seems Ben Affleck wasn’t quite done with his TV takeover of FOX’s ‘The Middleman.’ Affleck has teamed with longtime partner Matt Damon to bring to CBS a new sitcom starring comedian Tom Papa, but what’s their ‘More Time with Family’ all about?

The end product of a bidding war between networks, Deadline reports that the multicamera ‘More Time with Family’ boasts Papa in a leading role based off Papa’s standup and Matt Damon’s own experiences, wherein a man changes his career and gives up a life on the road to spend more time with his titular family. Once he does however, he realizes no one necessarily wanted him to in the first place.

Papa and Damon developed the project working together on ‘Behind the Candelabra,’ turning to Cathy Yuspa and Josh Goldsmith as co-writers with Affleck’s Pearl Street Films on board to executive produce. So far, ‘More Time with Family’ has earned at least a put-pilot commitment at CBS.

Production remains in the earliest stages for now, but what say you? Would you want to spend ‘More Time with Family,’ even if Ben Affleck and Matt Damon stayed off-camera producing for CBS?
