CBS has given a full-season order to freshman comedy B POSITIVE for the 2020-2021 broadcast season.
B POSITIVE, from award-winning executive producer Chuck Lorre and creator Marco Pennette, stars Emmy Award nominee Thomas Middleditch and Tony Award winner Annaleigh Ashford in a humorous and life-affirming series about Drew (Middleditch), a therapist and newly divorced dad who, when he discovers he needs a new kidney, runs into Gina (Ashford), a rough-around-the-edges woman from his past who volunteers hers. Kether Donohue, Sara Rue, Izzy G. and Terrence Terrell also star. The series is inspired by Pennette's personal experience as a transplant recipient.
B POSITIVE airs Thursdays (8:30-9:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. The series is produced by Chuck Lorre Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television.
Series stars Middleditch and Ashford were so happy about the pickup that they asked to deliver a video message. You can see the clip on their Instagram feeds:
