Finally creepy exes who won’t take a hint are getting a TV drama devoted to their crimes.

Kevin Williamson’s new drama project about cops who go after stalkers just received a CBS pilot order. The Vampire Diaries and The Following writer-producer’s show is a described as a “psychological thriller centered around a pair of detectives who handle stalking incidents for the Threat Management Unit of the LAPD.”

It case you’re wondering, the show is based on a real police unit. The LAPD created the country’s first Threat Management Unit in the early 1990s after actress Rebecca Lucile Schaeffer was killed by a fan who stalked her for three years.

The CBS show doesn’t have a title yet. But you can bet somebody inside CBS thinks TMU: Threat Management Unit sounds just fine.
