Jim Gaffigan is on the move!
The Jim Gaffigan Show, which was originally developed at CBS, has received a series order at TV Land, the network announced Tuesday.
The comedy stars Gaffigan as a happily married, harried NYC father of five — just as he is in real life. Rescue Me co-creator Peter Tolan and Gaffigan will write and executive-produce the series, which was picked up for 10 episodes.
"I am thrilled that TV Land is giving us this opportunity to do this show that Peter, Jeannie and I have been fine-tuning for three years," Gaffigan said in a statement. "I'm probably most excited about the craft service. I gained 20 pounds for this role. Ok, fine. It was 40 pounds."
