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 Meco-creator Peter Tolan and Gaffigan will write and executive-produce the series, which was picked up for 10 episodes.  

How are these stars still working?

"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."

The Jim Gaffigan Show, which also stars Ashley Williams, Michael Ian Black and Adam Goldberg, is set to premiere in 2015.
