13 Mar 2014
The CBS Network has announced pick-ups for 18 series — nine dramas, five comedies, two reality series and two news programs — for the 2014-15 season.
“The best way to launch new shows in the fall and throughout the season is to surround them with a strong and stable lineup of successful series,” said Nina Tassler, chairman of CBS Entertainment, in a statement. “The shows we’re picking up today cut across every night of the week and feature genre leaders, time-period winners and the most-watched shows on broadcast television.”
The nine dramas picked up include "NCIS," "NCIS: Los Angeles," "Person of Interest," "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation," "Hawaii Five-0," "Blue Bloods," "Criminal Minds," "Elementary" and "The Good Wife." The renewed comedies are "2 Broke Girls," "The Millers," "Mike & Molly," "Mom" and "Two and a Half Men."
In alternative programming, the Network announced pick-ups for "The Amazing Race" and "Undercover Boss"; also renewed are the news programs "60 Minutes" and "48 Hours."
CBS previously announced a three-year broadcast deal for "The Big Bang Theory" and two more editions of the reality series "Survivor" for next season.
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
