Left for dead, CBS and 20th manage to revive ‘Chaos’ — WTF, I know, right?

Chaos The chaos behind “Chaos” took another unbelievable turn Wednesday: CBS finalized a deal to pick up the Brett Ratner actioner.

Yes, this is the same “Chaos” that was left for dead at the end of June, after the Eye and producer 20th Century Fox TV couldn’t come to terms on a deal.

After that, options for the show’s actors were allowed to expire and both sides called it a day. Hands were wiped. 

With “Chaos” dead, CBS even signed a blind script deal with “Chaos” creator Tom Spezialy, who was set to develop a new drama for the network.

But the CAA reps who packaged “Chaos” refused to say die. After sitting CBS and 20th down, a new deal was finally hammered out. Kumbaya.

Under the agreement, 20th Century Fox TV remains as producer on the show, which is set for a midseason bow. And the show’s cast has agreed to come back and continue with the show — including star Freddy Rodriguez.

Read more about it here. Meanwhile, I’ll go back to prepping my “CHAOS IS DEAD AGAIN!” post. Just in case.
