• Letterman regular Tommy Johnagin snags CBS pilot deal

    Comedian Tommy Johnagin has landed one of the early exciting pilot orders from CBS. Johnagin has sold a half-hour comedy pilot for a multi-camera show based on his life as a stand-up comic raising a family in a small Midwest town. Johnagin is a regular guest on Late Show with David Letterman (he’s appeared seven times!) and has appeared on John Oliver’s New York Stand-up Show, was a runner-up on NBC’s Last Comic Standing and has his own half-hour special on Comedy Central. Johnagin will write the pilot with Justin Halpern and Patrick Schumacker. In 2012, Johnagin snagged a development deal with NBC based on a similar premise. Check out a track from one of Tommy Johnagin’s stand-up comedy albums below.
