TNT and TBS have ordered up four series pilots, including an update of primetime soap Dallas.
The shows are from producers Dean Devlin (TNT's Leverage), Marco Schnabel (TNT's Librarian), Kenneth Biller and Mike Sussman (Star Trek: Voyager), Allan Loeb (The Switch, Wall Street), and Cynthia Cidre (Mambo Kings).
The pilots for TNT are Perception (working title) from Biller and Sussman, about a neuroscientist who helps the government solve "complex cases"; an untitled drama project from Loeb based on The Rabbit Factory about a detective who navigates the singles seen while his widowed wife stays in contact with him; and Dallas, with Cidre executive- producing, an update the iconic CBS series by looking at the next generation of the Ewing oil dynasty.
TBS is working on Brain Trust, a comedy from Devlin about a detective, whose career rebounds from rock bottom with the help of a trio of new super-smart partners.
