Just three weeks after his legal pilot, “Guilty,” landed at FOX, THR reports the “Everwood” and “No Ordinary Family” creator has sold another drama to CBS.
A cop series, currently called “Golden Boy,” the project follows an ambitious twenty-something detective rising quickly in the ranks. It’s also being described as “The Good Wife” with a young police officer.
Writer Nick Wootten, who got his start on “NYPD Blue” before working on series such as “Chuck,” “Prison Break” and “Law & Order,” will pen the pilot.
CBS gave “Golden Boy” a put-pilot commitment, meaning once the script is in, it will be shot and likely make it to air — lest the network pay significant penalty fees.
“Golden Boy” is the latest project under Berlanti’s apparently fruitful deal with Warner Bros. Television, which will produce alongside his own Berlanti Productions.
