By this spring, CBS could reach a worthy goal – an all-Chuck-Lorre comedy block.
The network announced today (Wednesday), that “United States of Al” (shown here) will debut at 9:30 p.m. Thursday, April 1, after “The Unicorn” finishes its season.
If nothing else changes, that would put it after three other Lorre comedies – “Young Sheldon,” “B Positive” and “Mom.” Lorre also has “Bob (Hearts) Abishola,” at 8:30 p.m. Mondays.
The new show has Parker Young as a Marine combat veteran, trying to re-adjust to life in Ohio. Adhir Kalyan plays Awalmir (“Al”), his former Afghanistan interpreter, newly arrived in the U.S.
The pilot film was directed by Mark Cendrowski, who directed Lorre’s “The Big Bang Theory.
