CBS Orders Crime Drama Pilot of Rookies from Robert de Niro and Richard Price

Telemystery: Mystery and Suspense on Television

Last October we got the news that Robert De Niro and Richard Price had sold a script to CBS for a crime drama involving rookie cops titled, appropriately, Rookies.

Now we're learning (via Inside TV) that CBS has taken the project a step further, ordering a series pilot.

Robert de Niro is, of course, Robert de Niro and needs no further introduction. Crime novelist Richard Price has had two of his novels, Clockers and Freedomland adapted for film (he also wrote the adaptation for the latter) and written several major motion picture screenplays (including The Color of Money and Ransom). His television screenwriting credits include five episodes of the critically acclaimed series The Wire.
