Burnett to find stolen kids for Eye

Web greenlights production on hourlong 'Recovery'

CBS has picked up six episodes of a Mark Burnett-produced reality skein dedicated to rescuing kidnapped children.

Eye has greenlit production on “Recovery,” an hourlong skein in which military and law enforcement vets attempt to find stolen kids and reunite them with their parents. Burnett has been working on the project for more than two years, with CBS taking possession of the pilot earlier this year (Daily Variety, March 29).

In the pilot, ex-CIA op Bazzel Baz led the team of operatives in the rescue mission. Conrad Riggs will serve as co-exec producer on the skein.

“The show is like ‘Without a Trace,’ but it’s with a kid who really has been taken,” Burnett said earlier this year, noting each episode will follow one or two cases.

Greenlight for “Recovery” gives CBS three Burnett-produced skeins. In addition to “Survivor,” net has also pacted with the producer for the music-based “Rock Star.”

Burnett also has “The Apprentice” and “The Contender” at NBC; the sitcom “Commando Nanny,” a drama pilot and a blind reality commitment from the WB; and “The Casino” at Fox.
