CBS has officially kicked off its pickup process in preparation for next week’s upfront presentation in New York. The network ordered Person of Interest, a new drama from J.J. Abrams and Bryan Burk that centers on an ex-CIA agent, presumed dead, who teams up with a mysterious billionaire to prevent violent crimes in NYC. It stars Michael Emerson and James Caviezel.
The network also gave a thumbs up to Two Broke Girls, which is from Michael Patrick King and Whitney Cummings, and follows two broke 22-year old gals in Brooklyn. It’s a multi-camera laugher that features Kat Dennings and Beth Behrs.
