'Good Will Hunting' duo Matt Damon and Ben Affleck to produce a TV sitcom

Ben Affleck and Matt Damon to produce a TV sitcom

The Hollywood actors - who wrote Oscar-winning 1997 film 'Good Will Hunting' together - have teamed up once again for 'More Time With Family', a 30-minute per episode series which has been picked up by the US television network CBS, Variety has confirmed.

The show is based on Tom Papa's stand-up piece, which follows a man who ditches his career to spend more time with his family, but, after returning from spending time on the road, he realises no one pushed him into making that life-changing decision.

The programme will star Papa and will be co-written by 'King of Queens' Cathy Yuspa and Josh Goldsmith, as well as have snippets of Damon's life experiences intertwined within the script.
Damon, 42, and Papa, 44, reportedly came up with the idea for 'More Time With Family' after previously working together on 'Behind the Candelabra' and 'The Informant'.

The pair presented the thought to Affleck, whose production company Pearl Street Films is making the venture into TV projects, before the three of them met with a number of writers prior to settling on Yuspa and Goldsmith and signing a deal with 20th Century Fox.
