Bradley Cooper, Ryan Kavanaugh, Kurtzman & Orci Producing ‘Limitless’ Pilot for CBS

Bradley Cooper and Ryan Kavanaugh are reteaming to develop a TV series for CBS based on the 2011 drama “Limitless.”

CBS has given a pilot production commitment to the CBS TV Studios project, which has a raft of heavyweight producers and original feature helmer Neil Burger on tap to direct.

Craig Sweeny, an exec producer of CBS’ “Elementary,” is penning the adaptation and will exec produce with Burger, Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci and Heather Kadin of K/O Paper Products, as well as Cooper (pictured right) and Todd Phillips from their newly formed Yet to Be Named Company banner.

Relativity chief Kavanaugh (pictured left), Tucker Tooley and Relativity Television’s Tom Forman are also exec producing. Leslie Dixon, who wrote the feature screenplay, and Scott Kroopf are co-exec producers.

Series will pick up where the film left off in telling the story of a man who uses a drug to achieve powers that allow him to be a force for good. Cooper, Robert De Niro and Anna Friel starred in the pic.

Relativity has been shopping a small-screen rendition of “Limitless” for some time. This year the major networks have gone bananas for movie-to-TV adaptations, with more than two dozen such properties in various stages of development.
