CBS has given pilot orders to three projects from women writers and executive producers.
“History of Them” is a multi-camera hybrid from “One Day at a Time” executive producer Gloria Calderon Kellett. The multi-cultural ensemble comedy is about how two friends, Luna and Adam, meet and fall in love, using the couple’s social media (Instagram, Twitter, Facebook) as a guide.
Broadway star Ana Villafañe is attached to play Luna in the project co-produced by Sony Pictures Television and CBS Television Studios. Pamela Fryman will direct and executive produce alongside Marc Provissiero.
“Murder” is an hourlong drama pilot from “Lethal Weapon” and “Law & Order: SVU” alum Amanda Green. Executive produced by Dan Lin and Lin Pictures, the project is shot like a true crime documentary and “explores crime through the unique and often conflicting perspectives of cops and killers, witnesses and victims, friends and family.”
Alongside Lin and Green, Lindsey Liberatore will serve as co-executive producer.
“I Mom So Hard” is an adaptation of the webseries of the same name by Kristin Hensley and Jen Smedley. Smedley and Hensley are attached to star in the multi-camera comedy and write the pilot with “2 Broke Girls” alum Michelle Nader.
“Veronica Mars” and “iZombie” creator Rob Thomas will also executive produce the pilot alongside his Spondoolie Productions partners Danielle Stokdyk and Dan Etheridge.
