CBS has given a pilot order to untitled drama project from Bates Motel writer Nikki Toscano and the A&E/Universal TV series’ executive producer Kerry Ehrin. It hails from Universal TV, which will now co-produce with CBS TV Studios. This marks the 11th (!) pilot or series order this season by ABC, CBS, NBC or Fox to a project from an in-house production division of another network (excluding Fox sibling 20th TV, which has established itself as a major studio selling to everyone.) That is up dramatically from last season’s 3 such pilot orders, two of which — Fox/Uni TV comedy Brooklyn Nine-Nine and CBS/ABC Studios drama Intelligence – went to series. This season, after ABC Studios and CBS Studios made a strategic move in that area, ABC Studios has landed 5 outside broadcast orders, Universal TV 4 and CBS TV Studios 2.
