CBS picks up five pilots

Bruckheimer medical drama included

It was a busy Friday at the Eye, which picked up five pilots — including a new medical drama from Jerry Bruckheimer.

NBC, meanwhile, greenlit another comedy pilot, “State of Romance,” late Friday.

At CBS, the pilots included Bruckheimer’s “Miami Trauma,” as well as the dramas “Three Rivers” and “The Good Wife” and comedies “Accidentally on Purpose” and “Waiting to Die.”

Jeffrey Lieber wrote and exec produces “Miami Trauma,” which comes from Bruckheimer TV and Warner Bros. TV.

Medical drama centers on a team of trauma surgeons saving critically injured patients in Miami. Trauma units are big this pilot season: NBC previously greenlit the pilot “Trauma.”

Bruckheimer and Jonathan Littman are also exec producing, while KristieAnne Reed is a co-exec producer.

Eye caught the hospital bug last week: “Three Rivers” also has a medical theme, centering on organ transplants through the eyes of doctors, donors and recipients.

Carol Barbee (“Jericho”) is writing and exec producing; Curtis Hanson and Carol Fenelon are also exec producers.

CBS Paramount Network TV is behind “Three Rivers,” as well as “The Good Wife.”

Penned by Robert and Michelle King (“In Justice”), legal show focuses on a politician’s wife who carves out her own niche as a defense attorney.

The Kings are exec producing with Ridley Scott, Tony Scott and David Zucker.

On the comedy side, chalk up yet another pilot for Sony Pictures TV-based Tantamount, the shingle run by Eric Tannenbaum, Kim Tannenbaum and Mitch Hurwitz.

Tantamount and Sony are behind “Waiting to Die,” a buddy comedy about two easygoing guys. Will Sasso and Chad Kultgen created and wrote the pilot.

Eye’s other comedy pilot pickup, “Accidentally on Purpose,” is based on the autobiographical novel by Mary F. Pols about a San Francisco movie critic who has a fling with a younger man — and accidentally becomes pregnant.

Claudia Lonow (“Cashmere Mafia”) wrote and created the laffer; Lloyd Braun and Gail Berman are also attached through their BermanBraun label. CBS Paramount Network TV produces.

As for the Peacock’s “State of Romance,” comedy is described as a Chicago-set modern-day “Pride and Prejudice.”

Barbara Wallace and Tom Wolfe (“Welcome to New York”) are the exec producers. Universal Media Studios produces.
