CBS has ordered a new comedy pilot from producer David E. Kelley that will star Robin Williams, as well as two new hourlong drama pilots, one from the creators of Homeland, TVGuide.com has learned. Crazy Ones is a single-camera, half-hour workplace comedy about a father/daughter team in the world of advertising.
Anatomy of Violence, which will be executive-produced by Homeland's Howard Gordon, Alex Gansa and Alex Cary, is about a criminal psychologist and expert on sociopaths who partners with a young female detective with whom he shares a conflicted past.
Intelligence, from Michael Seitzman (North Country), takes place at U.S. Central Command and is about a unit that has been created around one agent with a very special gift — a microchip that has been implanted in his brain, allowing him access to the entire electromagnetic spectrum. Seitzman will act as executive producer and writer for the pilot, alongside David Semel, who will direct, and Tripp Vinson.
