CBS Entertainment today announced its new fall lineup, which includes an emphasis on the network's comedy programming.

One of the more interesting new comedies announced is The Crazy Ones, a new show featuring comedian Robin Williams and Sarah Michelle Gellar of Buffy the Vampire Slayer fame. The show will premiere this fall in the 9:00 EST slot, just after The Big Bang Theory and The Millers, a new comedy starring Arrested Development's Will Arnett. It is being produced by David E. Kelley, the Emmy Award-winning creator of shows such as Ally McBeal, Boston Legal, The Practice, and Chicago Hope.

The Crazy Ones will be a single-camera comedy about the head of an advertising agency named Simon Roberts (Williams), whose eccentric behavior is matched only by his skill in advertising. Gellar will play Sydney Roberts, Simon's daughter and business partner, whose ambition and work ethic put her at odds with her father. The pair are joined by a varied cast of employees played by James Wolk, Hamish Linklater, and Amanda Setton.

Last month, Williams teased fans by tweeting out several photos from the set of The Crazy Ones:
