CBS has given a full-season order to comedy B Positive. The show, from Chuck Lorre, debuted Nov. 5. It’s about a newly divorced dad who, when he discovers he needs a kidney, runs into a rough-around-the-edges woman from his past who volunteers hers.  

The series is inspired by creator Marco Pennette’s experience as a transplant recipient. 

Thomas Middleditch and Annaleigh Ashford star alongside Kether Donohue, Sara Rue, Izzy G., and Terrence Terrell.
