Identity, penned by The Good Wife‘s Corinne Brinkerhoff and exec-produced by Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci, centers on a young woman in need of a transplant who learns she is related to a powerful family whose son is her only hope for a donor organ.
The CIA approaches her to investigate the family’s involvement in domestic terrorism and to infiltrate their rarified world. Her loyalty, morality and ethics are tested as she’s forced to slowly build a case against the family who saved her life.
Additionally, the network ordered Jane the Virgin, an adaptation of the successful Venezuelan telenovela about a hard-working, religious young Latina woman who is accidentally artificially inseminated. 90210‘s Jennie Snyder Urman penned the script, which will be produced by CBS Television Studios in association with Electus.
