A lot of news about the TV Network pilots are starting to trickle through. CBS Network is the second one i’ll be featuring.
From probably the best comedy on TV: 2 Broke Girls, remake’s like Hawaii Five-0 and drama’s Blue Bloods (procedural), Code Black (medical), and Scorpion (techy action) are currently home to the CBS Network.
The new shows include drama’s Bull (Michael Weatherly – Alias), Doubt (Katherine Heigl – Greys Anatomy), remake’s MacGyver & Training Day and Drew based on Nancy Drew which apparently might get pulled off due to being too “female”, have you ever??? A lot of series today have strong female lead like Greys Anatomy (Meredith Grey), Scandal (Olivia Pope), Revenge (Amanda/Emily) and Rizzoli and Isles (Jane and Maura)
