CBS has put in development Doc Ford, a drama project based on Randy Wayne White’s book series. Chris Gerolmo (Mississippi Burning, The Bridge) is writing the adaptation, about a retired NSA agent-turned-marine biologist who gets justice for those in need on the Gulf Coast of southern Florida. Gerolmo and Jeffrey Kramer are executive producing for CBS TV Studios, and Rick Rosenthal is supervising producer. Gerolmo, who also created the FX Iraq war series Over There, is repped by ICM Partners, as is White. The Doc Ford book series consists of 20 novels, starting with 1990′s Sanibel Flats. The most recent, Night Moves, was published last year.
