CBS Orders 'Friends with Better Lives,'

'Reckless' marks net's third new drama pickup; 'Friends' brings the Beek to the Eye

CBS has invested in Dana Stevens drama “Reckless” for the fall season, making the drama order total for the Eye three so far. On Sunday, the Eye also gave a series nod to comedy “Friends with Better Lives.”

Billed as a “sultry legal show,” “Reckless” takes place in Charleston, South Carolina where a Yankee litigator and a southern city attorney struggle to hide their intense attraction while clashing over a police sex scandal.

Cam Gigandet and Anna Wood are attached to star in the CBS TV Studios series.

Stevens penned the pilot and serves as co-exec producer. Ian Sander and Kim Moses are exec producing as well along with Catherine Hardwicke, who helmed “Reckless.”

“Friends” revolves around a group of 30-somethings who all think the others have it better. James Van Der Beek toplines the 20th Century Fox TV multi-cam half-hour penned by Dana Klein and helmed by James Burrows.
