TBS Greenlights Two Comedy Series for 2006

MY BOYS Stars Jordana Spiro (JAG, Must Love Dogs)

10 ITEMS OR LESS Mixes Scripted Comedy and Improv

Both Series Coming to TBS from Sony Pictures Television

TBS has given the green light to MY BOYS and 10 ITEMS OR LESS, two scripted comedy series from Sony Pictures Television. The announcement was made today by Michael Wright, senior vice president of original programming for TBS and TNT, who unveiled the series for advertisers at the networks� Upfront presentation. Production on the series will commence later this year, with the premieres slated for Q4 2006.

�Our audience is made up of fans of relationship-based and character-based comedies, shows where the laughs are rooted in strong character work and great storytelling,� Wright said. �With the help of some very talented people, we�re actively developing and producing what we know the TBS audience already likes: scripted half-hour comedies that are clever, contemporary and relatable, and that leave a smile on your face.�

MY BOYS is a half-hour scripted comedy series starring Jordana Spiro (JAG, Must Love Dogs) as PJ, a twenty-something �guy�s girl� who tries to find romance within her world dominated by male friends. As a huge sports fan and professional sportswriter, she has a masculine, no-nonsense, sports-analogous approach to dating that often freaks out potential boyfriends. Her only female friend advises her to dress and act more feminine, but it�s hard for PJ to shake off her tomboy qualities. Jim Gaffigan (That �70s Show, Ed), Jamie Kaler (The Family Stone), Michael Bunin (Scrubs), Reid Scott (American Dreams), Kyle Howard (Related, Orange County) and Kellee Stewart (Guess Who?) co-star in this series from Sony Pictures Television and Pariah. MY BOYS is being executive-produced by Gavin Polone (Curb Your Enthusiasm, The Gilmore Girls), Jamie Tarses and writer Betsy Thomas (Run of the House).

10 ITEMS OR LESS is a half-hour scripted and improvised comedy series from the creators of the acclaimed mockumentary Memron. The series stars John Lehr (Memron) as a less-than-successful businessman from New York City who moves back home to take over the family supermarket after the death of his father. But the staff quickly realizes his management style is markedly different from that of his father, making for a comically chaotic workplace. Greg Davis Jr., Brian Posehn, Chris Payne Gilbert, Kristen Gronfield, Christopher Liam Moore and Roberta Valderrama co-star in this series from Sony Pictures Television and executive producers Robert Hickey, Nancy Hower and Lehr.

TBS is television�s �very funny� network, serving as home to such hot contemporary comedies as Sex and the City, Everybody Loves Raymond, Family Guy, Seinfeld and Friends; original comedy series and specials; blockbuster movies; and hosted movie showcases.

Turner Broadcasting System, Inc., a Time Warner company, is a major producer of news and entertainment product around the world and the leading provider of programming for the basic cable industry.
