One of the shows added to the CBS lineup for fall is called The Crazy Ones and it stars Williams and Sarah Michelle Gellar as his daughter.
According to an entertainment blog on CNN the synopsis of the show is as follows:
“Robin Williams returns to series television in this single-camera workplace comedy about a larger-than-life advertising genius whose unorthodox methods and unpredictable behavior would get him fired… if he weren’t the boss. Simon Roberts (Williams) is the head of a powerful agency, with the biggest clients and brands in the world, but even more important to him is that his daughter Sydney (Sarah Michelle Gellar) is by his side. As his partner, Sydney is Simon’s exact opposite – focused, organized and eager to make a name for herself, but also too busy parenting her father, which she’d resent if he wasn’t so brilliant at what he does. Joining them in the firm are the dashing and talented Zach (James Wolk); art director Andrew (Hamish Linklater), who’s as hard-working as he is neurotic; and the beautiful and deceptively smart assistant Lauren (Amanda Setton). With his team and his daughter behind him, Simon continues to set the advertising world on fire, and it looks like they are definitely buying what these crazy ones are selling.”
But Williams and Gellar aren’t the only star power CBS is bringing to their lineup. Anna Faris and Will Arnett are also set to star in two new shows. The Millers for Arnett , which will be Thursday nights at 8:30, and Mom for Faris, that will air on Monday nights at 9:30).
The Crazy Ones will appear on air Thursdays at 9:00 – after The Millers.
