Jerry Bruckheimer Television's Jerry Bruckheimer, Jonathan Littman and KristieAnne Reed and Zero Gravity's Jack Kingsrud and Mark Williams will also executive produce for CBS Television Studios. (Deadline.com)
ARE WE OK? (ABC, New!) - Megan Gailey and Aaron Burdette are set to team for a single-camera comedy at the Alphabet about "how a Midwestern couple in their 20's manages to stay together after the entire world sees their marriage proposal end in disaster. And on a deeper level, it's about their long, winding journey to figure if they're actually meant to be together." ABC Studios is behind the half-hour with Jamie Tarses likewise executive producing.
