Pilot Scoop: CBS Orders Drama Widow Detective

CBS has ordered a drama pilot from CSI exec producer Carol Mendelsohn about a cop who’s basically the kiss of death.

The hour-long project, titled Widow Detective, revolves around a decorated police officer who, after losing three partners in the line of duty, becomes a surrogate husband, lover and father to their families.

David Hubbard penned the script and will serve as an exec producer along with Mendelsohn.
