What the WHAT?! A theme park sit-com?

Edited: November 28, 2018, 1:59 PM

Well this is a head turner of a headline on Deadline Hollywood "CBS Buys Colonial-Times Theme Park Comedy ‘America, U.S.A.’ From Michael Kramer, Lilli Birdsell & Alex Reid".

From the article: "CBS has put in development America, U.S.A., a single-camera theme park workplace comedy from husband and wife duo of TV writer-producer Michael Kramer (Men in Trees, Life Unexpected) and actress Lilli Birdsell (TURN), writer-director-producer Alex Reid (Brooklyn Nine-Nine) and CBS TV Studios. Written by Kramer and Birdsell, America, U.S.A. is a young workplace ensemble set at a Colonial-times theme park called America, U.S.A."

Can we expect a Robert Niles cameo/walk-on?

The story says the concept is based on Colonial Williamsburg, rather than something like Busch Gardens, so I think people in this community would be more likely to call it a historical park than a theme park, but hey, I'm interested.
