Seacrest has some serious #SquadGoals.

Ryan Seacrest will executive produce a multi-camera sitcom entitled "Squad Goals" for CBS, according to Variety. "Squad Goals," a term that's perhaps now best associated with Taylor Swift's ever-expanding group of friends you wish you could hang out with, but never will, is the second Seacrest sale of the week. CBS is also developing the drama “The Down Beat,” which hails from Ryan Seacrest Productions and also names rapper Ludacris as fellow executive producer.

"Squad Goals" follows a group of college friends who realize it's finally time to grow up. The script comes from Lindsey Rosin and Aaron Karo, who were inspired by the pivotal crossroads moment faced by many post-grads today. Rosin was responsible for the much buzzed-about "Cruel Intentions" musical, which brought together Reese Witherspoon, Sarah Michelle Gellar and Selma Blair in the audience -- our favorite #SquadGoals of the year.

Seacrest's most famous squad, however, is the Kardashians. He has served as the executive producer of "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" for the past eight years. The "American Idol" host even nabbed a spot in the family's 2009 Christmas card, taken at Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom's wedding.


Odom, who was found unconscious in a Nevada brothel and hospitalized, remains in critical condition. Seacrest joined the chorus of family members and celebrities hoping for a swift recovery. He recently retweeted Kardashian matriarch Kris Jenner's Instagram calling for prayers for Lamar and added the caption, "sending love."
