The series stars Adhir Kalyan and Parker Young in a comedy about the friendship between Riley (Young), a Marine combat veteran struggling to readjust to civilian life in Ohio, and Awalmir (Kalyan), also known as Al, the interpreter who served with his unit in Afghanistan and has just arrived to start a new life in America. Elizabeth Alderfer, Dean Norris, Kelli Goss, and Farrah Mackenzie also star.

"Once again, Chuck, his talented writing team of Maria and David, and an amazing cast brings us a heartfelt and touching comedy that honestly and respectfully reflects the experiences and challenges our veterans deal with upon returning home, and the deep bonds they develop with those serving alongside them," said Thom Sherman, Senior Executive Vice President, Programming, CBS Entertainment.

"In addition, United States of Al holds up a mirror to ourselves in a unique way by taking a look at American culture through the eyes of an immigrant who is experiencing it all for the very first time," Sherman added.

David Goetsch & Maria Ferrari, Chuck Lorre, Reza Aslan, Mahyad Tousi, and Director Mark Cendrowski (pilot only) are Executive Producers for Warner Bros. Television and Chuck Lorre Productions, Inc.

The new comedy joins four additional series from Chuck Lorre already on CBS, including #1 comedy Young Sheldon, #2 comedy Mom, this season’s #1 new comedy B Positive, and last season’s #1 new comedy Bob Hearts Abishola, which premieres its second season on Monday, Nov. 16.
