CBS has ordered a new drama pilot from “11.22.63” showrunner Bridget Carpenter, the network announced Tuesday.

“The Get,” which Carpenter will write and executive produce, follows a team of tireless internet journalists who pursue and expose stories of injustice using their unconventional investigative techniques.

The newest pilot pickup for the network joins previously announced drama pilots including “Mission Control,” which will follow the next generation of NASA astronauts and scientists who must juggle both their personal and professional lives during a critical mission with no margin for error; “Killer Instinct,” which follows a former CIA operative who has since built a “normal” life as a gifted professor; and “Perfect Citizen,” which follows the former General Counsel for the NSA embarks on a new career at a storied law firm in Boston after his involvement as a whistleblower in an international scandal.

On the comedy side, the network has “Me, Myself and I” from writer and executive producer Dan Kopelman, as well as “9J, 9K, AND 9L,” which will star and be co-written by “Royal Pains” star Mark Feuerstein.
