Los Angeles - Matt Damon and Ben Affleck are to produce a TV sitcom.

The Hollywood actors - who wrote Oscar-winning 1997 film Good Will Hunting together - have teamed up once again for More Time With Family, a 30-minute per episode series which has been picked up by the US television network CBS, Variety has confirmed.

The show is based on Tom Papa's stand-up piece, which follows a man who ditches his career to spend more time with his family but, after returning from spending time on the road, he realises no one pushed him into making that life-changing decision.

Damon’s life experiences

The programme will star Papa and will be co-written by King of Queens Cathy Yuspa and Josh Goldsmith, as well as have snippets of Damon's life experiences intertwined within the script.

Damon, 42, and Papa, 44, reportedly came up with the idea for More Time With Family after previously working together on Behind the Candelabra and The Informant.

The pair presented the thought to Affleck, whose production company Pearl Street Films is making the venture into TV projects, before the three of them met with a number of writers before settling on Yuspa and Goldsmith and signing a deal with 20th Century Fox.
