CBS has a new cop drama in the pipeline. Deadline.com reports that the network ordered “C.H.A.O.S. — Downtown Division” from K.J. Steinberg, who developed “Mistresses” at ABC.
The sale is the first for Steinberg under a two-year overall deal she signed with Sony Pictures TV, the story notes. Steinberg will write the project and serve as showrunner, the report adds.
The article notes: “The project revolves around Nic Fontana and Abigail Luce, promoted as the new faces of Los Angeles’ most embattled police division. At the peak of their careers, with the respect and trust of their new charges hard enough to win, the women are forced to implement the newest trend in police and citizen oversight sweeping the country: the body cam.”
