“CSI” showrunner and “The Defenders” exec producer has sold an untitled crime drama to the Eye based on the mystery novels featuring Jane Whitefield from author Thomas Perry. Craig Sweeney and Julie Weitz will exec produce.

The six Whitefield-centric tomes begin with “The Vanishing Act” in 1995 and end with “Runner” in 2009.

CBS Television Studios is set to produce.
