The man behind CBS’s successful drama "The Mentalist," Bruno Heller, has been given a pilot production commitment from the network for a show called "The Advocates," reports Deadline.com.
The legal drama is about a female lawyer and a male ex-convict who collaborate as victim advocates. Heller will executive produce and write the drama.
"The Mentalist" has been a substantial success for CBS since its launch in 2008. Prior to "The Mentalist," Heller co-created and executive produced HBO’s "Rome."
