Ben Affleck and Matt Damon are working together again!
CBS has secured a comedy pilot produced by Affleck and Damon, according to Deadline.
The half-hour comedy, "More Time With Family," stars Tom Papa as a stand-up comedian (not a big stretch!) who decides to cut back on travelling for work in order to spend more time at home with his family. But of course, when he settles into his routine, he realizes that "no one asked him to do that."

The show idea came about after Papa and Damon collaborated together on two movies, The Informant and Behind The Candelabra. Enter Damon's BFF Affleck, whose production company, Pearl Street Films, is taking on more television projects, and voila!
Besides starring alongside Damon in The Informant, Papa is known for his extensive stand-up work and appearing Analyze That opposite Robert De Niro.
This isn't the duo's first experience working together in TV. The Oscar winners were responsible for bringing Project Greenlight to HBO, the drama Push and Nevada.
