CBS Gives the Freshman Sitcom 'B Positive' a Full Season Order
LOS ANGELES – CBS has given a full-season order to freshman comedy B Positive for the 2020-2021 broadcast season.
“B Positive,” from award-winning executive producer Chuck Lorre and creator Marco Pennette, stars Emmy Award nominee Thomas Middleditch and Tony Award winner Annaleigh Ashford in a humorous and life-affirming series about Drew (Middleditch), a therapist and newly divorced dad who, when he discovers he needs a new kidney, runs into Gina (Ashford), a rough-around-the-edges woman from his past who volunteers hers. Kether Donohue, Sara Rue, Izzy G. and Terrence Terrell also star. The series is inspired by Pennette’s personal experience as a transplant recipient.
B Positive airs Thursdays (8:30-9:00 PM, ET/PT) on CBS. The series is produced by Chuck Lorre Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television.
