Los Angeles: Oscar-winners Ben Affleck and Matt Damon are teaming up to executive produce a new TV sitcom `More Time With Family`.

The friends, who previously won an Academy Award for co-writing the screenplay of `The Good Will Hunting`, would once again come together for the CBS comedy, reported Deadline.

`More Time With Family` is based on the stand-up comedy of Tom Papa and the experiences of Damon.

The story centres on a man, played by Papa, who changes his career and gives up a life on the road to spend more time at home with his family. Once he arrives, he realizes no one asked him to do that.

Affleck recently set a Boston period drama at Fox titled `The Middle Man` which the new Batman star will direct.
