News The Art Of Comedy

Posted on Jul 24, 2013 10:20am

CBS has released a first look of the key art designs for the Network's four new comedy series, The Crazy Ones, The Millers, Mom and We Are Men, to begin appearing in print, online and outdoor later this summer.

The Crazy Ones stars Academy Award winner Robin Williams in his return to series television as larger-than-life advertising genius Simon Roberts, whose unorthodox methods and unpredictable behavior would get him fired… if he weren't the boss.  The print design features Williams playfully posing with illuminated light bulbs.



Mom stars Anna Faris as Christy, a newly sober single mom and waitress raising two children in a world full of temptations and pitfalls, and multiple Emmy Award winner Allison Janney as Bonnie, Christy's critical, estranged mother. Christy's sobriety is tested when her recovering alcoholic mom re-enters her life, chock-full of passive-aggressive insights into Christy's many mistakes.  The key art features Janney striking a pose on top of Faris' head and shoulders.



The Millers stars Will Arnett as Nathan Miller, a recently divorced local roving news reporter looking forward to living the singles life until the unexpected marital troubles of his parents (Emmy Award winner Margo Martindale and Emmy Award winner Beau Bridges) suddenly derail his plans.   The key art is set in a bathroom, with Arnett pulling back the shower curtain from inside the bathtub – and Martindale and Bridges in the foreground.



We Are Men is about four single guys living in a short-term apartment complex who unexpectedly find camaraderie over their many missteps in love.  Carter (Chris Smith), the youngest and most recent addition to the group, moved in after being ditched at the altar mid-ceremony, and is now eager to re-enter the dating scene and get on with his life with some guidance from his "band of brothers": Frank Russo, a middle-aged clothing manufacturer and four-time divorcée who still fancies himself a ladies man (Golden Globe and multiple Emmy Award winner Tony Shalhoub); Gil Bartis, a small business owner who was caught having the world's worst affair (Kal Penn); and Stuart Weber,a speedo-wearing OB/GYN who's hiding his assets until his second divorce is settled (Jerry O'Connell).  The key art features (from left to right) Penn, Shalhoub, Smith and O'Connell enthusiastically jumping into a swimming pool.
