12. Far Rockaway (TBA)
‘Far Rockaway’ is being developed for CBS by Alex Kurtzmann, and it is a supernatural cop drama. At the centre of this story is a hard-working NYPD detective who dies in the line of duty. Unable to move on to the other side, he is given a chance to go back to Earth and get his unfinished business in order. The twist is that he won’t be going back as himself. His soul will be sent in the body of another man, with a completely different life than his own. Once back on Earth, the detective has to find the person responsible for his death and bring them to justice. He also has an obligation towards his family that has been devastated by his death, as well as the family of the man whose body he now possesses.
11. Crooked Brooklyn (TBA)
Michael Vecchione and Jerry Schmetterer’s 2015 book of the same name acts as the source material for this upcoming show that is set to air on CBS. It tells the true story of Vecchione, who had worked for Brooklyn DA’s office in the Rackets Division and had come face to face with the corruption in various political and law enforcement offices. He had been a part of many cases which became pivotal in bringing down some very big names, which included, but were not limited to, a couple of Supreme Court judges, various politicians, some cops who had connections with the mafia and a surgeon who was illegally trading bones! And this is just a handful of cases. There’s a lot of ground to be covered while telling this story, which means a lot more drama and intrigue for the audience.
10. Blood Ties (TBA)
