EXCLUSIVE: In the heat of the broadcast buying season when most pitches start to blend together, this one easily stands out. I’ve learned that NCIS: Los Angeles showrunner Shane Brennan has teamed with Tiësto, a superstar DJ and record producer of electronic dance music. The hourlong project, which is being taken out by CBS TV Studios where Brennan is under an overall deal, is expected to feature original music written for the series by Tiësto. I hear Dutch-born DJ (birth name Tijs Michiel Verwest) is flying in for pitch meetings for the show, on which he is expected to serve as an executive producer alongside Brennan and possibly appear. Tiësto, who is hugely popular in Europe, also has done sold-out shows in the U.S. and performed at the Opening Ceremony of the Athens Olympics. Listen to a compilation of his hits and watch the behind-the-scenes YouTube series Tiësto In The Booth after the jump.
