Chuck Lorre certainly seems to be on a roll. The 'King of Sitcom' is all set to present yet another comedy but this time, he is certainly shifting focus to something absolutely different. According to a report in The Hollywood Reporter, the multi-camera comedy called The United States of Al will explore the friendship between a Marine combat veteran and his unit's Afghan interpreter, who's newly arrived in America.
Lorre's previous collaborators, David Goestch and Maria Ferrari will be serving as writers for the pilot. They executive produce with Lorre, religious scholar, author and TV host Reza Aslan and Mahyad Tousi. The series comes from Chuck Lorre Productions and Warner Bros. TV, where both Lorre and Ferrari are based.
The United States of Al will follow the friendship between Riley, a Marine who is struggling to readjust to civilian life in Ohio, and Awalmir (Al), the Afghan interpreter who served with his unit and has just come to the United States to start a new life.
Just in case you didn't know, Chuck Lorre is the creator of iconic sitcoms like Two and a Half Men, The Big Bang Theory, and has longrunning sitcom running right now in the form of Mom.
