CBS has rounded out its drama pilot orders with a pickup of Reckless, a legal primetime soap executive produced by Ian Sander and Kim Moses. I hear Reckless landed the last CBS drama pilot spot in a contest with a couple of other contenders, including David Marshall Grant’s adaptation of the Israeli format Ran Quartet and Barbara Hall’s multi-generational family drama produced by Scott Free. In all, CBS ordered 11 drama pilots this season, including a planted NCIS: LA spinoff, up from 7 last year.
Written/executive produced by Dana Stevens (City Of Angels), Reckless is described as a sultry legal show set in Charleston, South Carolina, where a gorgeous Yankee litigator and a Southern City Attorney struggle to hide their intense attraction while clashing over a police sex scandal. CBS TV Studios is producing. The project reunites Sander and Moses with CBS, the network which aired The Ghost Whisperer, the long-running supernatural drama the duo executive produced for ABC Studios and CBS Studios. This marks Sander and Moses’ first pilot in their first development season since they left long-time home ABC Studios last summer to set up shop as independent producers.

Gaslight at ABC is written/exec produced by feature scribe Michael Cooney (Identity). It is described as a lavish soap opera of passion, greed and hope set in a present-day Steampunk World in which three rival families battle for power and redemption in a re-imagined San Francisco. The project is produced by ABC Studios, extending Sander/Moses’ relationship with the studio where the company had a first-look deal for the past eight years.
