LL Cool J still ‘The Man’ for CBS

Network close to giving show midseason slot

It looks like LL Cool J is still “The Man” for CBS.

It’s still not official, but CBS is close to giving a midseason pickup to the LL Cool J starrer, which was created by “CSI” mogul Anthony Zuiker. Production order likely will be for six episodes.

Skein, from CBS Par Network TV, revolves around an LAPD cop (Cool J). If the pickup becomes official, it’s expected the pilot will be reworked and reshot.

Toward that end, there’s talk that “CSI: NY” exec producers Pam Veasey and Peter Lenkov might come on board the project.

CBS and the studio declined to comment.
