Following the premiere of Shatner's "$#*! My Dad Says," CBS is reportedly developing another Twitter-inspired sitcom, this one produced by Kutcher, an early and highly visible adopter of the social media platform.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, the CBS version of "Don't Tell Steve" is about man who deals with an immature roommate. Like "$#*! My Dad Says," the Twitter feed's premise is a guy who secretly Tweets the actions of somebody he lives with (in this case, his jobless, drunken roommate). The feed has drawn more than 13,000 followers.

"$#*! My Dad Says" was the first television comedy derived from tweets.

Kutcher has nearly 6 million Twitter followers and is among its most active celebrity voices. He's already had a hand in producing several TV shows.
