CBS Picks Up Jason Biggs’ Hell


CBS has given a late pilot pickup to “I’m in Hell,” a single-camera comedy starring Jason Biggs (“American Pie” films).

The project, from CBS Paramount Network TV, centers on a high-flying Wall Street guy (Biggs) who dies in a BlackBerry-related car crash. Because hell is at full capacity, he is reassigned to “hell on Earth.” He is stripped of his career, his fancy apartment and the fabulous trappings of his former existence and must figure out a way to get by.

Aron Abrams and Greg Thompson (“Everybody Hates Chris”) wrote the script and are executive producing. Biggs and his manager Peter Kiernan are producing.
