Three other series are confirmed to join the already-announced "Person of Interest" and "Two Broke Girls" on the CBS line-up when the network reveals its full schedule May 18.

Deadline reports the drama "Rookies" (now "The 2-2") and "The Rememberer" (now "Unforgettable") and the comedy "How To Be a Gentleman" (still "How To Be a Gentleman") have all been picked up.

"The 2-2," from executive producer Robert De Niro, is a cop series starring Leelee Sobieski ("Joan of Arc") and Adam Goldberg ("The Unusuals"). As for "Unforgettable," the procedural follows a former detective ( Poppy Montgomery) who can remember anything.

David Hornsby, a writer and sometimes star of "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia," created and stars in "Gentleman" -- a loose adaptation of John Bridges' book of the same name, in which Hornsby plays a magazine editor who writes a column on how to be a respectable modern male. "Entourage" vet Kevin Dillon co-stars.

Making some room for these series are the recently canceled "Sh*! My Dad Says," "Mad Love" "The Defenders."

Update: Deadline also reports that the medical drama from Susannah Grant ("Party of Five"), now called "A Gifted Man," will also be on the schedule.
