The two boys from Bahston are back togethah!

Sort of.

Academy Award winners Ben Affleck and Matt Damon will executive produce a half-hour comedy for CBS entitled "More Time with Family," according to The Huffington Post.

Comedian Tom Papa will star and the trio hand-picked former "King of Queens" writers Cathy Yuspa and Josh Goldsmith to pen the script.

The series is allegedly based on Damon's life experiences. Papa explains that the show will feature a man "who changes his career and gives up a life on the road to spend more time at home with his family, but when he gets there, he realizes no one asked him to do that."

Papa and Damon worked together on the HBO movie "Behind the Candelabra" and on the film "The Informant."

Affleck owns the production company Pearl Street Films and has been trying to foray into television.

Last month, Fox announced that Affleck will both produce and direct the pilot for a project called "The Middle Man".
