Just a few weeks after he sold a legal drama to Fox, Greg Berlanti (“Everwood,” “Brothers & Sisters,” “Dirty Sexy Money”) has sold a cop show to CBS, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Berlanti’s new drama is “Golden Boy,” part of his new deal with Warner Bros. Television. The show, which is being written by Nick Wootton (“Chuck,” “Law & Order,” “NYPD Blue”), tracks a twenty-something cop who breaks a drug ring and rises quickly through the ranks.
Wootton and Berlanti will both executive produce the show, which has received a put-pilot commitment from the network. A number of networks were said to be bidding on the project.
Berlanti sold the legal drama “Guilty” to Fox just three weeks ago, the story points out.
