STATUS: previously in development (2013-2014 season)
DEVELOPMENT STAGE: ordered to pilot
DESCRIPTION: (from TBS's press release, February 2013) TBS has ordered a pilot for Do It Yourself, a new sitcom from executive producers and creators Walt Becker (Wild Hogs, Van Wilder) and Rob Long (Cheers, TBS's Sullivan & Son). The pilot is being produced by TBS. Do It Yourself is the story of Nick, a 20-something laid-off math teacher who finds himself thrust into the blue collar world when he gets a job at that most American of retail institutions: the big box home supply store. Nick quickly becomes the de facto leader of his band of misfit coworkers while also figuring out ways to redefine what it means to be a teacher.
