*Tim Story, director of the “Ride Along,” “Think Like A Man” and “Fantastic Four” movie franchises, is jumping back to the small screen for his next project.

The filmmaker will direct and executive produce “What Goes Around Comes Around,” a single-camera comedy pilot for CBS from writer Dan Kopelman (“Malcolm In The Middle”) and producer Aaron Kaplan, reports Deadline.

The project follows two forty-something parents who were wild and reckless teenagers and now face their worst nightmare—raising three teenagers of their own.

This marks a reteaming for Story and Kaplan, who also are working together on the Nicki Minaj pilot at Freeform (formerly ABC Family), which Story directed.

Story also directed the TV pilots for “Standoff” (Fox drama) and “Brothers In Atlanta” (HBO comedy), both of which were picked up to series.

Story is the highest-grossing African-American director, with seven movies opening at No.1 — “Ride Along 2” (2016), “Ride Along” (2014), “Think Like a Man Too” (2014), “Think Like a Man” (2012), “Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer” (2007), “Fantastic Four” (2005) and “Barbershop” (2002).
