CBS has given series orders to three of its five drama pilots, Max Thieriot’s country of fire (fka lime fire); east new york, led by Amanda Warren and Jimmy Smits; Y So help me Todd (fka Untitled Mother & Son Legal Drama), starring Marcia Gay Harden and Skylar Astin. CBS doesn’t comment beyond that, but I hear all three series are for the fall.

True Lies, ordered as an off-cycle pilot, had also been rumored for a series order, probably for the middle of the season. I heard negotiations between CBS and 20th Television are continuing, and the project is still very much alive.

CBS can now do the same with Thursday’s two-hour block.

So help me Todd has been one of the Cinderella stories of the 2022 broadcast season.
