The Mentalist or The Good Wife? That’s the way most network experts pitched CBS’ Sunday night dilemma. They could either renew the well-liked, moderately-rated crime procedural that does very well in syndication and overseas or they could renew the award-winning, moderately-rated legal drama. It was supposedly one or the other.
Comparisons to Chuck are inevitable, however, the NBC series was a fish out of water story about some schlub getting a computer installed in his brain where Cybercom Special Agent Gabriel Vaughan in Intelligence doesn't just belong in the clandestine world, he was selected for the enhancement because of his extensive military training. But even government superheroes need protecting, especially when they're a coveted asset.
We’ve been waiting quite a while to see Josh Holloway back on TV in a starring role, and CBS is about to make it happen sooner than originally planned. CBS has set the premiere date for Intelligence for January, a month ahead of its originally scheduled February debut.
Josh Holloway, Aimee Teegarden, Kristin Kreuk, Dean Norris, Mike Vogel and Rachelle Lefevre are among the names listed in the panel information below for CBS studios' Intelligence, Star-Crossed, Beauty and the Beast and Under the Dome. Brian K. Vaughan will also be there for Under the Dome, which should please fans of the series as much as it does fans of his comic book writing.
Ready for the fall? Yeah, me neither. The summer TV season is only just getting started but CBS is already getting their ducks in a row for the Fall and those who want to plan ahead can get a look at what the Eye has in store for their viewers come September.
Josh Holloway's got a machine head (…better than the rest). Based on the preview for CBS' new series Intelligence, the drama not only puts a computer in the mind of Holloway's Gabriel, but it also delivers some exciting special effects, imagining the kind of technology a guy like Tony Stark might appreciate. And from the look of it, Gabriel isn't merely equipped with a brain full of files and facts, but a body trained and capable of throwing down when the action gets started.
The CBS drama pilot Intelligence has tapped a Lost star for the leading role. Josh Holloway will come on board the project, which is based on the unpublished book by John Dixon called Dissident, in a starring role.
CBS has picked up two more drama pilots today, one from a trio from Showtime’s Homeland, and the other from writer Michael Seitzman. They’ve also made official the order for the David E. Kelley comedy pilot Crazy Ones which would bring Robin Williams back to television in a starring role if it goes to series.
