TBS Picks-Up One-Hour Comedy Series; Sitcom Stars on Talk Shows (Week of May 17, 2010)

TBS has given the greenlight to the one-hour comedy series Glory Daze, a 1980s-set college comedy starring Kelly Blatz (Aaron Stone), Callard Harris (Sons of Anarchy), Matt Bush, Drew Seeley, Hartley Sawyer, Julianna Guill and Tim Meadows (Saturday Night Live, Mean Girls). TBS has ordered eight episodes of the series, which was created by Walt Becker and Michael LeSieur. Glory Daze is slated to premiere on TBS in late 2010.
Glory Daze centers on a group of friends who are trying to navigate college life in 1980s Wisconsin. From being out on their own for the first time to pledging a fraternity, they discover how challenging the next few years are going to be.
