CBS has ordered the midseason drama “Homestead” from Columbia TriStar TV and CBS Prods.
“Homestead” stars Ann-Margret and Sonia Braga, and it’s being considered for a possible Saturday night slot midseason, sources said. The show is executive produced by David Jacobs and Michael Filerman.
Jacobs created “Dallas” and created and executive produced “Knots Landing,” while Filerman also was an exec producer on “Knots Landing.”
Ann-Margret is a five-time Golden Globe winner, four-time Emmy Award nominee and two-time Academy Award nominee. She recently starred in TV movies “Blue Rodeo” for CBS and “A Streetcar Named Desire,” also for CBS. Braga starred in “The Milagro Beanfield War,” among other pics.
In the show, the two actresses play best friends in a small rural town. Ann-Margret plays a widow who owns a ranch; Braga’s character runs a diner.
