Pilot Scoop: CBS Orders Robin Williams Comedy, New Drama From Homeland Creators
CBS has ordered Crazy Ones, a half-hour David E. Kelley-produced comedy pilot starring the former Mork & Mindy star.
Additionally, the Eye network has ordered a drama pilot exec produced by Homeland‘s Howard Gordon, Alex Gansa, Alex Cary, as well as a potential series set at US Cyber Command.
Crazy Ones is described as a father/daughter workplace comedy set in the world of advertising. Jason Winer (Modern Family) will direct the pilot.
Anatomy of Violence, from the Homeland trio, centers on a criminal psychologist with an expertise in sociopaths who partners with a young female detective with whom he shares a conflicted past.
Lastly, CBS has ordered Intelligence, a drama pilot centered at US Cyber Command that focuses on a unit that has been created around one agent with a very special gift — a microchip that has been implanted in his brain that allows him to access the entire electromagnetic spectrum. Michael Seitzman wrote the script and will serve as an EP alongside David Semel (No Ordinary Family) and Tripp Vinson.Follow @MichaelAusiello
