CBS Considers "Genius Bar" TV Series

CBS Considers "Genius Bar" TV Series

by , 9:45 AM EDT, October 2nd, 2006

CBS plans to shoot a pilot episode for a sit-com style show called Genius Bar. According to Reuters, the series centers on the interactions between employees at the customer help bar in an Apple-esque store and the employees at a near by Abercrombie & Fitch-style store.

The show concept comes from two former That 70's Show producers, Josh Sternin and Jeff Ventimilia, and consumer marketing expert Krishnan Menon. ABC and NBC also showed interest in the series, but ultimately the CBS bid won out.

There is no word yet on when filming for the pilot episode will begin, or if CBS has firm plans to add it to its programming line up.
