CBS Orders Pilots for Mommy Track Mysteries, Two Other Crime Dramas

Nursery Crimes by Ayelet Waldman

Last September CBS acquired a television project to adapt the Ayelet Waldman "Mommy Track" mysteries. Yesterday, the network ordered a pilot for a potential series.

In the books, Juliet Applebaum — the series has a tentative title of Applebaum — has given up her career as a public defender to stay at home with her young children … but crime finds a way into her neighborhood giving her a chance to solve mysteries (or Nursery Crimes, as the first book in the series is titled).

CBS also gave the go-ahead to a pilot for Quean, featuring a Lisbeth "Dragon Tattoo" Salander-type character, who works with an Oakland (California) police detective to solve crimes. And a third pilot order goes to an untitled 1960s-era drama with a former rodeo cowboy-turned-Las Vegas sheriff.
