NBC Gives Put Pilot Order to Bruckheimer TV’s ‘Bass Player’

CSI: NY” alum Pam Veasey has teamed again with Jerry Bruckheimer TV, this time for an offbeat multicamera comedy about a future president of the United States.

“The Bass Player, HIs Neighbors, Their Landlord & Their Lovers” (working title, natch) revolves around a group of twenty-somethings living in D.C.’s Foggy Bottom neighborhood. One of them is destined to move into the Oval Office in 2036 while the others will unknowingly be part of the future vetting process for his or her candidacy.

Veasey (pictured above) is writing the script and exec producing with Bruckheimer TV’s Jonathan Littman and Jerry Bruckheimer. The shingle’s KristieAnne Reed is co-exec producer.

The Warner Bros. TV laffer takes Veasey back to her comedy roots. Early in her TV career she was a producer on Fox’s “In Living Color” and scribe on comedies including ABC’s “The Robert Guillaume Show” and CBS’ “Can’t Hurry Love.”

More recently, Veasey has been a top drama showrunner. She was at the helm of “CSI: NY” throughout its nine seasons on CBS. She also exec produced the Sarah Michelle Gellar drama “Ringer” for CW in the 2011-12 season. This year she’s working as a consulting producer on CW’s “The Tomorrow People,” also from WBTV.

Veasey and Bruckheimer TV are also fielding a drama pilot for Fox about a psychologist who teams with a closeted gay LAPD detective.

Veasey is repped by CAA.
