Neil Patrick Harris May Direct A CBS Comedy Pilot
Neil Patrick Harris may be back behind the camera directing again. The How I Met Your Mother star previously directed an episode of the CBS comedy and word is, heís close to signing a deal to direct a comedy pilot for the same network.
Variety states that Harris, who plays the womanizing Barney in How I Met Your Mother is eying a deal to direct the yet to be titled Peter Knight CBS comedy pilot.
The multi-camera comedy series is being written by Peter Knight (Krod Mandoon and the Flaming Sword of Fire) and exec-produced by Happy Madisonís Doug Robinson. Itís described as a workplace comedy that (according to what Deadline posted last month), follows a group of assistants and junior executives as they attempt to advance in their career while juggling their social and romantic lives.
Harris has certainly proven to be funny in front of the camera. Itíll be interesting to see how well he does directing the pilot if this deal goes through and the show gets picked up.
