Musician John Mayer will tape a pilot for a CBS variety show, making it the second time he works with the network.
It will be a music variety/sketch show. It's being developed now, said CBS network entertainment president Nina Tassler on Wednesday at the Television Critics Association conference in Los Angeles.
Mayer, who recently got back together with ex-girlfriend Jennifer Aniston, has previously appeared in a 2006 episode of CBS' CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, and in 2004, he produced a talk show/comedy sketch show for VH1 called John Mayer Has a TV Show.
He came to us, Tassler told People magazine of Mayer.
He has a very strong point of view. He knows his audience really well; he knows his brand of humor really well.
Mayer shot to fame with his hit song Your Body is a Wonderland in 2001. Since then, he has won five Grammy awards and is nominated for two more this year.
