CBS Gives Pilot Order to Stephen King Adaption From Greg Berlanti and Seth Grahame Smith

One-hour drama project follows unlikely pair of investigators carrying out the unfinished business of the dead

CBS is tapping the work of Stephen King for programming inspiration again.

The network’s adaptation of King’s novel “Under the Dome” was a welcome summer hit for CBS last year, and it has given a put-pilot order to another King adaptation, this time from Greg Berlanti (“Arrow,” “Brothers & Sisters”) and Seth Grahame-Smith (“The Hard Times of RJ Berger”).

Berlanti Productions is producing in association with Warner Bros. Television, with Berlanti (pictured), David Katzenberg and Sara Schechter executive producing.
