As expected, CBS has ordered nine episodes of Universal’s Century City
for midseason.

With Becker back on the schedule, Century City joins sitcom
The Stones on CBS' midseason bench.

The show is a drama set in a law firm in 2053, with an ensemble cast
comprised of Hector Elizondo, Nestor Carbonell, Viola Davis, Eric Schaeffer,
Ioan Gruffudd and Kristin Lehman.

Paul Attanasio, Ed Zuckerman and Katie Jacobs are executive producers for
Heel and Toe Films in association with Universal Network Television.
