‘United States Of Al’ Picked Up To Series By CBS, Giving Chuck Lorre 5 Comedies On the Network, 6 Total On the Air
CBS has given a series order to United States Of Al, its multi-camera comedy pilot from Chuck Lorre, David Goetsch and Maria Ferrari. The intention is for the newly picked up series, starring Adhir Kalyan and Parker Young, to air during the 2020-2021 broadcast season, which is being disrupted by the coronavirus pandemic.

The series pickup announcement comes on Veterans Day, fitting for a show whose co-lead character is a veteran. The order also brings Lorre’s comedy series currently on CBS to five, with United States of Al joining the most watched comedy series on broadcast, Young Sheldon; #2 comedy Mom; last season’s most watched new comedy series Bob ♥ Abishola; and this season’s newcomer B Positive. This is a new high-water mark for Lorre, whose previous record was four series on the network. Lorre also has the Golden Globe-winning Netflix comedy series The Kominsky Method, bringing his tally to six on-air series.
