CBS Orders Project From Morgan Freeman Deadline
CBS has given a green light to a drama project from Oscar winner Morgan Freeman and “Joan of Arcadia” creator Barbara Hall. Deadline.com reports that the network ordered a pilot for “Madam Secretary,” which is about the personal and professional life of a female Secretary of State.
Freeman’s Revelations Entertainment is producing with CBS TV Studios. The project marks CBS’s first drama pilot order, although the network also has the straight-to-series drama “Battle Creek.” Meanwhile, NBC, ABC and Fox are “pretty much done with their drama pilot orders,” the piece notes.
