CBS, with all of its ratings and wisdom, has decided to reorder the pilot for Superior Donuts, a show starring Jermaine Fowler. This is for midseason consideration of course. Deadline reports that Brian d'Arcy James is not continuing with the series but Maz Jobrani and David Koechner are still on board. We reported a few months ago that Fowler was working on something with CBS and he even mentioned it in our interview with him. CBS loves Fowler at the moment so all of this is completely understandable. Superior Donuts is about "the relationship between the owner of a donut shop (the role that is being recast), his new young employee (Fowler) and their patrons in a gentrifying neighborhood of Chicago."
