In 2014, FYI Networks announced it would pick up a pilot, "Say It to My Face", featuring Holzman and Chernow "defending themselves from their toughest online critics." That same year it was announced that Holzman and Chernow were the inspiration behind an upcoming CBS sitcom, for which they will serve as consulting producers, executive produced by Bill Lawrence, borrowing from the Meatball Shop owners' real lives.
