Cop drama from 'CSI: NY' co-exec producer
CBS has purchased “Siringo,” a one-hour crime drama script from “CSI: NY” co-exec producer Trey Callaway.
Pilot is set up at CBS Studios and based on the life of cowboy Charlie Siringo, a Pinkerton Agency operative who uses investigative techniques and his own instincts to catch crooks in late-1800s Old West.
Callaway will exec produce with Mace Neufeld, who was producer on the Tom Clancy bigscreen adaptations that featured CIA agent Jack Ryan (“The Hunt for Red October,” “Patriot Games, “Clear and Present Danger” and “The Sum of All Fears”). More recently, he produced last year’s Matt Damon starrer “Invictus.”
