CBS making drama pilot orders

Eye orders Sony TV's 'Big Shot,' new spin on Sherlock Holmes

CBS is starting to make its drama pilot pickups, handing orders to legal-themed drama “Baby Big Shot” and a modern-day take on Sherlock Holmes.

Sony Pictures TV/CBS Television Studios’ “Big Shot,” penned by scribe Dana Calvo, is exec produced by Jamie Tarses, Julia Franz and Kevin Falls, through Tarses’ Sony-based Fanfare banner. Falls will serve as showrunner on the project about a woman from a blue-collar background who uses her street smarts to make it the white-shoe world of Manhattan law firm.

“Elementary,” from CBS TV Studios, finds the famed detective now living in New York City. Robert Doherty penned the pilot and exec produces with Sarah Timberman and Carl Beverly.

Among the other heatseekers on CBS’ drama docket are its “Rifleman” redo, the procedural drama about a genetic scientist from scribes Shawn Ryan and Simon Mirren and “Golden Boy,” a project about a young police officer from Greg Berlanti and Nick Wootton. Also generating good buzz is “Mommy Track Mysteries,” based on the series of novels by Ayelet Waldman, and “The Widow Detective,” from scribe Dave Hubbard and Carol Mendelsohn Prods.
