ADAM CAROLLA's radio show may be history, but his career isn't, as his TV sitcom gets a pilot order from CBS.
VARIETY reports that CAROLLA, who was among the casualties in the demise of CBS RADIO Talk KLSX/LOS ANGELES (along with his syndication) on FRIDAY, will star in "ACE IN THE HOLE," a comedy pilot written by CAROLLA and KEVIN HENCH, his co-writer for the film "THE HAMMER." In the show, produced by CBS PARAMOUNT TELEVISION along with BERMAN/BRAUN and CAROLLA and JIMMY KIMMEL's JACKHOLE PRODUCTIONS, CAROLLA will play a driving instructor and family man.
KIMMEL and former "JIMMY KIMMEL LIVE" Executive Producer DANIEL KELLISON will serve as Executive Producers along with CAROLLA, HENCH, and industry vets GAIL BERMAN and LLOYD BRAUN. CAROLLA is starting a podcast TODAY (2/23).
