Chuck Lorre will have yet another comedy on CBS with Bob Hearts Abishola, starring Billy Gardell, who previously starred in the Lorre-produced CBS comedy Mike & Molly. He'll play a middle-aged sock businessman who unexpectedly falls in love with a Nigerian immigrant nurse, played by Folake Olowofoyeku, who takes care of him after he suffers a heart attack. NCIS alum Perrette will star opposite Jane the Virgin's Jaime Camil in Broke, about a wealthy trust fund baby who is cut off by his father, forcing him to live with his estranged sister. Everybody Loves Raymond alum Heaton is returning to CBS to star in Carol's Second Act, playing a mom who pursues her dream of becoming a doctor after raising two kids. Finally, CBS has ordered The Unicorn, starring Walton Goggins as a recent widower who learns he is a hot commodity in the dating scene. Rob Corddry and Michaela Watkins also co-star.
