The "Dallas pilot was ordered by TNT. It comes to the network from Warner Horizon Television and executive producer Cynthia Cidre.

TBS is moving forward with the pilot for "Brain Trust," a show about a police detective who solves cases with the help of "three hyper-smart geniuses from a private think tank." "Brain Trust" is a collaboration between Dean Devlin and Marco Schnabel that's being produced for TBS by Devlin's Electric Entertainment.
