CBS adapting 'Mommy Track Mysteries' for fall

A popular book series from Ayelet Waldman could become a drama series for fall on CBS.

The network on Thursday gave a thumbs-up to three drama pilots, including one based on Waldman’s Mommy Track Mysteries series about a former public defender who becomes a private investigator to keep from being bored to death as a stay-at-home mom.

Another drama in the works for fall comes Nicholas Pileggi (Goodfellas) and Greg Walker and is a period piece set in the 60s about Ralph Lamb – a rodeo cowboy turned longtime sheriff of Las Vegas.

CBS also greenlit the Joel Silver pilot Quean, described by the network as an “edgy and independent Millennial hacker girl who teams up with an Oakland police detective to solve crimes.” Alternative title: Lisbeth by the Bay?
